As you might notice, the last couple of weeks I've been dedicating a series of posts to holidays, that special season we all have been anticipating. Today I'm continuing covering holiday inspired events in the city.
So, gifts have been unwrapped, dinner tables cleaned and now is a perfect time for some outside inspiration. Sunny but crispy cool day was perfect for a trip.So, here's what I did on the day after Christmas.
The United States Botanic Garden in Washington is one of the oldest botanic gardens in North America. The Garden informs visitors about the importance and fundamental value of plants, and highlights the diversity of plants worldwide, as well as their aesthetic, cultural, economic, therapeutic and ecological significance.
This holiday season the famous Garden Railway Exhibit features eight model trains and imaginative buildings created with twigs, leaves and anything else plant-related. This year’s exhibit challenges you to find out “Who Lives Here?”. Dwellings vary from Presidential homes to magical fairy condos and many you’ve never before seen or imagined.
