World Deserts exhibit--United States Botanic Garden

(United States Botanic Garden, Washington, D.C., July 2008)

(World Deserts exhibit)

Back from a blog tour of Yosemite and Northern California to the desert zone... sort of.

In July my family and I traveled to Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and spent several days touring the capital, which I had never seen. The Smithsonian, a collection of more than a dozen museums, is amazing! More later...

These photos were taken at The United States Botanic Garden at the foot of Capitol Hill. Of course I was immediately drawn to the World Deserts exhibit. The plants looked for the most part like what you'd find in the deserts of the Southwest. Here's the link.
