Brooklyn Botanic Garden – Plant Architecture Mini Safari
On April 30, Georgia at localecologist went on an Animal Architecture Safari in Brooklyn. That very same weekend, I was also in Brooklyn and admiring architecture. Only I was taking note of plants instead of animals!
One thing I loved about the Brooklyn Botanic Garden was how they used recognizable species in their structures.
I was particularly fond of the doorway to the Native Flora Garden. The metalwork on the door had some cameos by familiar wildflowers.
The left panel of the door featured a Lady Slipper Orchid. They even included the grains in the leaves!
Meanwhile, the right side of the door featured a Jack in the Pulpit.
What wonderful attention to detail they put into their designs!
