Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory - Fort Wayne, Indiana

My favorite stop for photo shooting in Fort Wayne is the Botanical gardens. I had never seen a concept like this before (not that it din't exist, but I just din't visit any before!). The best part in this garden is that every season, they have a different display, providing a plethora of photo-ops.

The colors and flowers in this garden always just make me happy - pinks, reds, oranges, yellows.

The exhibit area of the Botanical gardens keep changing through out the year (and I keep going every season :)) The first time I was there, it was a Greek display, which unfortunately did not impress me much...

Moving to the central room, this one is the best and my most favorite room - The tropical forest! The scent of bamboos just make you forget the rest of the world for some time! But, it could as well be called a hell for the humidity that this room carries (fortunately, I am not annoyed by humidity as much).

The last section of the garden is the dry arid desert area. The thing that totally took me by surprise was that I had never seen how do cacti flowers look. This was the first time (so many firsts already!) I saw them and wow... they are pretty.. But I am yet to find out if in the hot sun, their vivid colors retain??

If you are a photo enthusiast like me, then all I can say is, if you have not been here before, go now, its not too late!
