On September 21, 2017 at around 4:00PM Durfee Conservatory was approached coming from the stairs in between Morrill N and Morrill S. The temperature was about 25°C and the atmosphere was cloudy, humid, and slightly windy. At the circular courtyard, facing the Durfee Conservatory, there were two paths to take into the garden and the left path was taken. At about halfway down the path, there were observed to be a patch of plants with variegated leaves, with green leaves and pink patches on the leaves. They were located in between a patch of flowers with very bright pink petals and a patch of flowers with small purple flowers. Standing on the sidewalk facing the plants, a picture was taken, holding the camera high above the flowers to capture as many of the target plants as possible.
Staying in the relatively the same spot, another picture was taken closer to the plants, holding the camera on the iphone about one foot away horizontally and on the same level vertically as the plants. An up-close photo was also taken of one plant specifically. The iphone was held about 10cm away from the plant, facing the petals so that inside of them could be seen.
A picture was also taken of the card describing of the plant. The card was approached, and the picture was taken holding the iphone camera about a foot away and directly across from the card. The picture was taken so that the description appeared on the far left of the picture, and the rest of the picture contained the target flowers.
