Lovely, Lush, and so Inviting!

As promised yesterday,  I am showing you (scads!) of photos from the Fern House and Tropical Rainforest.  Too bad I began my self-tour there, as it was the most comfortable and pleasant part of my journey through the glass houses.  It was in this area I also met a volunteer….a delightful man….who pointed out various things and told me about the Koi swimming in the pond. 

Rather than telling you about the tour,  I will leave you with photos.  And,  I will try not to show *so* many tomorrow.  This just happened to be my favorite part of the whole tour!  (One aspect that made it most enjoyable is that the misters were turned on and the vents were open, creating a cool environment!)
