Last year, we went to Florida and visited the headquarter of the American Orchid Society at Delray Beach, near Fort Lauderdale. I'd already posted the video of orchids displayed at the AOS's greenhouse, and now, here are the pictures of orchids and other flowers at AOS visitor and Botanical Garden in Florida.
Last Summer, we took a 5-day-car trip to visit some places west of Missouri. From St. Louis, Missouri, we drove to Denver, Colorado, spent most of the time driving in the first day of the trip! The next day, we visited Garden of the Gods in Colorado Spring, Mount Evans near Denver, and the Denver Botanical Garden in Colorado. The next day, we visited the Rocky Mountain National Park in the Northwest of Colorado. From there, we drove north to South Dakota. In the 4th day of the trip, we visited Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and Devils Tower in Wyoming. Driving home on the 5th day! We already placed the videos of this trip on Youtube, you can watch them in my Video page.
In the trip to San Jose last month, we visited a small, but beautiful Japanese garden in Saratoga. It's still cool in Saratoga in June, and it's so peaceful to walk around the garden, especially in the bamboo garden. Here are some pictures of this garden in my flowerpictures site.
