The conservatory in poinsettias

The conservatory in poinsettias

Some of the hundreds of poinsettias throughout the entire exhibit, which spanned three halls in the conservatory. At the very end of the pool is the US Supreme Court model.

Finally, Iím ending this gallery. Thanks so much for all the kind comments and votes! I thought this was such a unique way to honor American culture and history, as well as celebrate the 100th anniversary of the US Park Service and the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. that I couldn't keep myself from posting a lot of pictures of the exhibit ;-).
