Garden of Life

Just outside the Conservatory in the Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg is a Garden of Life.

As the plaque says, this symbolizes the chance for a new life that is possible because of organ donation and transplantation.  The plaque also says that the garden is filled with flowers that depict the shape or colour of the vital organs used in human transplantation.

The flowers are beautiful, of course, but I do not know which flower represents which organ, so I just took a bunch of pictures.  🙂  If I know the flower, I have indicated.
