but I am le tired... and the United States Botanical Garden


You ever have one of those days where you have so much planned and you feel so ambitious but then run out of gas? That's me today. I have a great post drafted and sadly didn't get a chance to post it today. So while I drink some night night tea and hope I'm not coming down with something, please enjoy this series of shots I got at the United States Botanical Garden last weekend.

If you visit just one museum on the National Mall, and aren't into art (which would be sad), then I highly recommend a stop here. The collection of flora ranges from all parts of the world from jungles to arid deserts. One of the current exhibitions discusses the genes of plants, which is more exciting than it sounds. They also have a lovely orcid room and who doesn't love a beautiful orcid?

Tomorrow will be a triple posting! wee!

a coffee plant, the nectar of life

coco tree... noms

These leaves look like watermelons!

and these look like Picasso painted his interpretation of a leaf, on a leaf.
