It was time to just 'smell the roses'....
The Botanic Garden is right across the street from the Capitol. If I lived here I would eat my lunch every day in the cool environs of this garden. Wow! What a treasure!
The special exhibits during my visit were the predator plants--Venus fly traps, pitcher plants, etc.
This is the children's garden with the rustic little playhouse. They have areas for planting and digging or just watering.
The profusion of flowers fills the air with the most wonderful smells. I was hoping a little of the scent would stick to me (and overpower the odors caused by 4 hours of hiking the Mall)
Don't stop here--the following post is for my aunts.
