At the End of the
Conservatory
Here the camera
has been shifted to
take in the flower beds at
the end of the conserva-
tory, with the hybrid elm
still in the middle ground.
Visitors are usually sur-
prised 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 seed-
lings are started in the
greenhouse, but very few
of them remain there be-
yond the kindergar-
ten period.
