Weekend review: Botanical Gardens

It only took me 4 years, but I finally crossed the Botanical Gardens off my DC bucket list this past weekend! Want to know what I have say about that? 2 thumbs up!


It’s a fairly simplistic adventure, but one that I was really excited about. I think I must have twirled, touched, and ooh’d/ahh’d all over the place for a solid 30 minutes. If you like plants, especially those housed in a giant glass building, then this is definitely the place for you. I mean, just look at that glass jungle…

Or that turtle topiary…

I did, of course, enjoy all the other plants (which for the most part, they do encourage you to touch).

And kudos to whoever thought it was a good idea to use every inch of space, especially for your crawling plants..

But what’s a botanical garden without an orchid feature. Easily (and probably overly cliche), my favorite.


All together now…oooooh!
