A Conservatory Tour PhotoJournal - National Botanical Gardens

Yes, I'm still recapping our conservatory tour from our Summer of Kennady vacation! I've tried to spread it out a bit, because after all, one glasshouse starts to look very like another! That's what we were starting to think, but all the same, we thoroughly enjoyed each of them. So let's pick up where we left off - we had come home and were going on day trips so that we could take Kennady's friends along. Or at least that was the plan. On the Thursday of our stay-cation week, we'd hoped to take Kennady's friend Meaghan along again, but she wasn't able to go after all. So it was just the three of us heading to Washington, D.C. and the United States Botanic Garden. Or National Botanical Gardens. Or whatever variation of the name.

We took the Metro and it was a rather muggy day, so coming into the cooler conservatory was refreshing! We did choose to spend more time in the cooler biome houses than in those like the desert house as a result.

As always, the orchids were fascinating.

The flowers on this tree reminded me of  the Truffula trees in The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

This bamboo is much better contained than what's growing in our backyard!

This was towards the end of the day, and we were all getting hot and tired, as you can see.

There's one more Conservatory Tour PhotoJournal still to come!
