i think we could fit a greenhouse in our yard

Earlier in the week my mom and I made plans to go to Longwood Gardens today.  And then yesterday was cold and dreary and when we woke up this morning it was pouring rain.  We decided to drive out anyway, since we had nothing to lose, and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon.

Is it too late to make a career switch to botany?

Oh gosh, how beautiful! I actually work part time in a greenhouse at my college and sometimes I wish it could be my full time job. It's so relaxing.

Everything is so beautiful, but I have no green thumb whatsoever!

Are those lily-pad looking things real? Or is that a Disney imagination thing? Amazing!

Beautiful! I love going to the Denver Botanic Gardens whenever I can. That's something I really miss since we moved away.
My dream house (like if I won the lottery dream house) would definitely involve a "conservatory." As well as someone to come and keep the plants alive and beautiful because sadly I do not have a green thumb.

Wow! What a gorgeous space. I especially love the outdoor areas with the water. I visited a similar (greenhouse at least) in San Francisco this year. It was so lovely, very humid and hot, but really beautiful! I'm glad you had such a lovely time! :) XO - Alexandra

This would be a beautiful to have in your yard but I can only imagine it might also be a full-time job to keep up with lol....well at least for me who has the worst green thumb. I do love walking through greenhouses and admiring all the different flowers and types of plants.

Emily said...

Soo stunning and on my list of places to visit one day! Whenever I'm at huge gardens I always wish I would have gone into botany too.

BEAUTIFUL!! I just love that wall of planters...if I lived in a warmer climate that would be so amazing for a home garden!

Those gardens are so pretty! The colours are incredible, and I love the lily pads. I'm also a fan of indoor hothouse type gardens, those looks really pretty. I wish I could visit!
