Conservatory, Smithsonian, Washington DC

National Botanical Gardens

One of my favorite places I have ever been, is the National Botanical Gardens in Washington DC.

Plants of every kind can be found while wandering along the curving paths throughout the garden.

I loved the orchid wall.

The vast conservatory is filled with tropical plants, and palm trees that extend all the way to the top of the glass dome. A catwalk wraps around the exhibit, so you can walk among the tree tops.

There was an even higher catwalk that looked amazing to walk along, but that one was off limits. I would probably be too scared to walk on it anyway.

I wanted to live there.

I loved the every part of the Botanical Gardens, but my favorite was the peaceful conservatory, with all the lush green plants, and the walkway in the tree tops. I didn’t want to leave!
