Last week I wrote a post about my visit to the Children’s Garden at the US Botanic Garden. Here are a few photos from the rest of my visit. It was unbelievably hot that day and I had all of the outside gardens to myself. The conservatory was climate controlled, of course, and just beautiful. If I lived or worked in DC I’m sure that I would visit very, very often.
The garden is located just to the right of the capital building, at the end of the National Mall.
Inside the conservatory there are surprises everywhere.
I loved this Pink Powder Puff, Calliandra emarginata
and this beautiful view.
And there are orchids. Here are a few photos for my friends who grow orchids…
As you know, I love Echinacea… this variety is called Big Sky Sunrise.
I’ll be sure to return the next time I’m on Capital Hill!
