Botanical Building in San Diego

This gorgeous display of plants was housed in Balboa Park's Botanical House. There are more than 2100 permanent plants here and we thought they did an impressive job of utilizing the space.Out front there is a beautiful lily pond and behind is a large tree, that I think is a type of fig tree.
We spent quite a bit of time just sitting and looking at the plants from a distance, and then getting as close as possible to see the detail. It was another wonderful day when we went here!
