The pictures for week 2 of my 52 Week Challenge are from the U.S. Botanic Gardens. I visited Easter weekend and particularly enjoyed seeing all of the orchids in bloom. I wish pictures could capture smells because the fresh, floral scent that filled the air was intoxicating. I didn’t want to leave.
Here’s a little bit of information about the Gardens: The U.S. Botanic Gardens in Washington, D.C. is on the grounds of the United States Capitol. The conservatory is divided up into different rooms according to habitat. A few of these include: the jungle, the orchid room, medicinal plants, rare and endangered plants, the Children’s Garden, and world deserts. Outdoor gardens include a rose garden, a butterfly garden and the First Ladies Water Garden which is a water garden in memory of the First Ladies of the United States.
