One of the orchids at the U.S. Botanic Garden. Their annual orchid display was really impressive – in general I’m not huge on orchids, but I was surprised by the huge variety in color, shape, size – different kinds look completely different! The gardens in general are quite lovely and really worth a visit. There are different rooms for each kind of ecosystem, from the desert (where I found yesterday’s cactus) to “Hawaii” to a rainforest-type jungle.
