We’ve called Baltimore home for nearly 2 years but there still is so much exploring to do. So my Adventures in Baltimore posts that made a sneak peak in 2011 will continue in 2012. I will regularly explore some place new and share with you my experiences.
The cold weather is bringing my adventures indoors to the Howard Peter Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens in Druid Hill. Going inside to see so many beautiful and exotic plants was a nice adventure for some macro photography. The remarkably gorgeous Palm House and Orchid Room were built in 1888, one of the few remaining Victorian conservatories left in the world. Later additions include 3 distinct greenhouses: The Mediterranean House, The Tropical House and The Desert House, each featuring plants from their climate. I’m looking forward to a warmer weather visit where I can see the outside gardens in their glory.
