Yesterday, I went to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens--what a nice way to spend a free evening. You may be asking what kind of gardens can Cleveland have in the middle of winter? Well, to be honest, most of the gardens are under snow at the moment, but they do have a glasshouse with two large garden exhibits. The first was modeled after Madagascar and had a lot of spiny plants. The second was modeled after the Cloud Rainforest in Costa Rica and it's where my favorite picture of the day (seen above) was taken. My favorite part of this exhibit was the colorful butterflies and birds flying all around us. Too bad they moved too quickly for a good picture.
