At the End of the Conservatory

Here the camera has been shifted to take in the flower beds at the end of the conservatory, with the hybrid elm still in the middle ground. Visitors are usually surprised at the small size of Mr. Burbank's greenhouse, but they soon learn that the greenhouse, although by no means unimportant, plays but a relatively small share in the work of plant development at Santa Rosa. Myriads of seedlings are started in the greenhouse, but very few of them remain there beyond the kindergarten period.
