Here are some more pictures from our recent trip to DC. They have the most amazing Bontanic gardens. I was the sickest on this day with runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes and I couldn't spend the day in there like I wanted - in fact I don't think I lasted 45 minutes. I went through an entire pack of tissues (eeeww)
Easter Lillies - there was a room just covered with the largest most beautiful Easter lillies I've ever seen.
One of my favorite flowers ~
I couldn't capture in a picture how beautiful this GLASS art is. There are so many different glass flowers in there and at one point when the sun came out that day it sparkled and was simply magical.
In one of the wings of the gardens there was an informational section and I was mesmorized by the ART in there.
These are all made of heavy duty metals and in the centers of some of the flowers were tv screens that showed pics of those particular flowers in nature.
Bird of paradise
Also, in the Natural History Musuem they had a featured section and it was all about orchids.
It was so crowded so I wasn't able to get too many pictures without limbs, cameras, etc. in them ~ but I did capture a few of the prettiest ones in there.
I hope you have a blessed day! SMILE lots today!
