    If you like plants and a fresh atmosphere, the Botanical Garden in Washington is worth visiting. The Botanical Garden is divided into several parts. You can see the characteristic plants in different growing environments. Because there is no admission ticket and the scenery is pleasant, there will be no "high price of goods" feeling of worthlessness, the overall tour is still very satisfactory.

    National Botanical Garden (UNITED STATES BOTANIC GARDEN) http://www.usbg.gov/Opening Time: 10:00-5:30 a.m. per day with Chinese-language tourist guides located adjacent to the Neighbouring Congress Building. After Washington was elected the first president of the United States in 1789, it was suggested that a botanical garden be built in the capital to show the importance of plants and gardening in economy and life. In 1820, Congress passed legislation to approve the establishment of the National Botanical Garden. Now the botanical garden is composed of the National Garden, the Greenhouse of the Giant National Botanical Garden and Bartoldi Park, covering 180 hectares. The Botanical Garden Hall displays many impressive models of famous Washington buildings, such as the Parliament Building, the Lincoln Memorial Hall, the National Library, etc. It is exquisite to carefully observe the production of plant stems, leaves, bark and seeds. Workers are explaining to children the characteristics and functions of leaves and petals of various plants, instructing them to color and fold on white paper cut into leaves and petals, and to make leaves and petals of different types of plants. The botanical garden greenhouse is warm and humid with mist. Visitors experience the beauty of plants through sight, smell, hearing and touch. Tall green-leafed plants are lush, some of them have gorgeous and colorful flowers, some of them have tiny seeds, and some of their branches are covered with peculiar fruits. Insect-eating plants make us marvel at the amazing adaptability of plants. Since the Jurassic period, the Botanical Garden has reproduced 150 million years of flowerless plant population and historically valuable ferns (FERNS), cycads (CYCADS) plants. The plants on display are labeled, including the popular names of plants, botanical names, plant families, original discoveries and current planting areas. Some signs also have telephone numbers, so you can hear more information when you dial them. Some have multiple bits, which can be scanned and accessed to the relevant web pages. There was an activity in the greenhouse that day to explain the conditions and process of seed germination of all kinds of plants, and to make plant necklaces under the guidance of staff. Workers instruct tourists to put a seed on the wet circular cotton paper, fold it in half, put it in a small plastic bag, blow, fold it up, and then put a rope through the bag to become a plant necklace. Tourists are happy to hang it on their chest. Workers said that every day to open, watering, careful observation of seed germination. Outdoor National Garden has more than 12,000 square meters, large green lawns, far away is the dome of the magnificent Capitol Building. It was early winter when we went. The sun was shining and there were many people sunning on the lawn. We visited for two hours.

    The National Botanical Garden is located on the right-hand side of the Capitol Building. The sculpture at the entrance is a modern plant branch. Looking at the entrance as an art gallery, I found that there was a huge indoor tropical rain forest inside, as well as outdoor plants show. I really don't know. It's so big inside, and all kinds of flowers and plants make people linger and forget to return. Scenic spots are free.

    The Botanical Garden is next to the Capitol Building. Although it is small, it has a good environment and beautiful flowers. However, in order for those tropical plants to flourish, the temperature inside is not low. Outside the Botanical Garden, there is a recreational venue with sunshade umbrella, bar chair and overlooking the Capitol Building. It's very pleasant.

    As long as the greenhouse plants are much smaller than the Chenshan Botanical Garden in Shanghai, this botanical garden in Washington is better than free.

    The National Botanical Garden of the United States. The oldest botanical garden in North America. It's next to the Capitol building. Flowers blossom all the year round, small and beautiful. In addition to orchids, there are also tropical jungles, as well as many living Chinese herbal medicines. A random shot is a picture.

    love walking around this urban oasis of calm. Even if you dont pay to go into the Japanese garden, walking around the outside is peaceful and worth the trip.
