I am sure the Gardens look different by now, with added gardens and exhibits. Who knows when I will be able to visit Washington DC again :-/
|The National Garden Fountain|
Green Man and Green Lady adorn the exterior of the Conservatory building
The United States Botanic Garden Conservatory contains eight garden rooms under glass, totaling 28,944 square feet of growing space
|The Dome is 93 ft high|
The orchid collection numbers about 5,000 with several hundred on display at any given time.
|Orchid Thunia alba|
The Desert room in the Conservatory, this one caught my eye, looks like a huge spider coming up from behind the rock /shudder/
Back when we visited , there was a neat glass art exhibition.
The Regional gardens
large collections of cacti and bog plants
We enjoyed our visit and I am hoping to visit again sometime!
