The botanic garden also has a fantastic conservatory, which just kept going, and going, and going. There was an orchid room, and a fern room, and a begonia room, and a Spanish hacienda garden, and a bonsai room. And more.
I really enjoyed our visit there, and absolutely must go back, because I still have so much more I need to see!
On Saturday (6/17), we headed out to the botanical garden, which was an easy subway ride from our hotel. The place is huge – there’s also an insectarium and a biodome you can visit – I don’t know how people do it. We managed maybe a quarter of the outside gardens, and the conservatory (that’ll be the next entry). I need to go back – there are still things I want to see that we didn’t get to.
I really loved how much in the outdoor gardens were plants I could grow in my own garden – I was taking (picture) notes left and right when labels were available.
