Before entering the Spheres, we stopped at The Understory. That's a mini-museum where docents give an overview of the Spheres and answer questions. One wall displayed gorgeous photos like this one. The screen took up the whole wall.
(Click on photos for a closer look.)
Here's what we saw at the Spheres.
|Tree Aloe - Mozambique|
|Huge trees stretched from floor to ceiling. Most of them |
had orchids and bromeliads in their branches.
I'd love to visit when those plants are in bloom.
|Pathways led through lush plantings and allowed close-up views.|
Many of the plants were labeled.
|Unfortunately, this plant wasn't labeled.|
What is it?
|Streams meander through the foliage.|
|Outside, the facility included a dog park.|
|Bikes to rent, too.|
