An Afternoon at Botanic Garden

The Conservatory at the Botanic Garden is one of my favorite places to spend a winter afternoon.  Most winters, I visit it at least once a month.  But this winter in Washington has, so far, been the mildest in memory, and, like revenge, tropical plants are best served cold.

If you’d like to believe that I shimmied up one of the trees to take this picture, I won’t disabuse you.

The orchid section at Conservatory is one of the smallest rooms, but it’s one of my favorites.
