Early morning trek to the Botanical Garden and I saw this guy along the way.
This set the tone for my adventure. I had a smile on my face for the next several hours.
Here was my destination: the 2014 Orchid Show. It was more fun when I went last year with my mom, but it was just as breathtaking.
I was willing to take a frigid walk to visit the Japanese Garden while I was there, but it was closed for construction. But I was still able to visit the Chinese Garden.
It’s hard to see, but there were lots of fat robins drinking from one of the few moving sources of water in the area.
And I’m throwing in this funky tree bark for good measure. Pretty stuff.
