Brookside Gardens Conservatory

I recently took a trip to a botanical gem just north of DC, Brookside Gardens. Wow was it worth it! Take a look at this philodendron to your right just as you enter the conservatory. Drool.

Those strelitzia leaves!!!!

 Don’t you just love when you get the timing just perfect and the light just sings?

Founded in 1969, Brookside garden houses 2 large conservatories and 50 acres of manicured paths. Follow trails and butterflies or take a seat in the shade of a tree. On this trip I stayed in the conservatory and while I was thoroughly soaked in sweat by the end it was worth every drop!

 Don’t you just hear it? *cue beautiful song*
