The Garden Railway

This was the most amazing train display I have ever seen.
 
Eight Hundred feet of track, displayed in Washington, D.C.
at the Botanic Garden
 
 
 
 
 

The United States Botanic Garden is one of the oldest
botanic garden in North America.
The garden has been recognized as one of the
country's premier botanical institutions.

Do you see the "man", laying with the apple??
I would have missed it, Chuck pointed it out to me

 


 



I would like to dedicate this entry to my dear friend Ruth
at Ruth's Photo Blog, who I admire immensely.
 Her beloved Jake was a train enthusiast.
I think he would have enjoyed this entry!!

W tym ogrodzie botanicznym są z pewnością piękne rośliny, ale ozdoby też są śliczne. Pozdrawiam.
This botanical garden is certainly a beautiful plant, but they are beautiful ornaments. Yours.
