The storms we had last night have given me hope that perhaps spring is finally arriving!! When I think of spring I think of many things, but I especially think of flowers. And when I think of flowers, I think of one place: the United States Botanic Garden.
It is part of the Smithsonian "complex" of museums, and is free to the public. I think it is one of the most under-appreciated museums in D.C., because it is GORGEOUS!! The last time I was there with my roommate, they were doing a large exhibit on orchids that was so beautiful. It is one of my favorite places in D.C.! Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure :)
