Garden Adventures

I’m an animal lover.  Big time.  I love to go to zoos and aquariums and nature parks and try to spot animals in their natural environments.  Most of the time I’m checking for the wildlife and I tend to pay less attention to the natural flora.   Sure, I look a bit when I see a breath taking natural view or fall awakens all of the colors that have been hiding under green…but honestly most of the time I don’t pay attention like I should.

I went on a botanical garden adventure last weekend that made me reexamine that point of view.  There are so many amazing and beautiful plants out there!

This garden was able to encourage plants that are from all parts of the globe to thrive!  Coming from the house plant killer I know that takes a lot of skill!

Many of the plants in the greenhouse came from tropical climates and they grew to tower over you.  It felt like walking through a jungle!  I think one of my favorite parts was how fresh the air smelled in the greenhouse and you could actually smell the flowers as you walked past!

I will definitely be keeping my eyes open to the fauna AND flora next time I go out on an adventure.
