Today was National Public Gardens Day and so of course I went to a conservatory. But really, who needs an excuse to go to a public garden? I never do. Anyway, I hope you made it to one today. I decided to go to Ann Arbor to Matthaei Botanical Gardens. And how nice was it, that parking was free today thanks to Domino’s?

I took a few pictures of what was flowering and just plain gorgeous, to share them with you in case you couldn’t make it to a garden today.

Dendrobium chrysotoxum

I love going to conservatories and today was a perfect day to go, but then, any day is a perfect day to go to a conservatory. Take your mom this weekend to a garden or if she isn’t with you any longer, take yourself or a friend to one and enjoy the day. You never know what you may discover.
