We spent about three hours at Rio's botanical garden, which was gorgeous and huge. There were lots of different sections, including an orchid house (which made Scott very happy!), a Japanese garden and an Amazon garden.
Scott stands in the center of the Orchid House, surrounded by his favorite kind of plant.
Scott sniffs one of the dozens of orchids in the orchid house.
I have no idea what kind of plant this was. Scott found the flower reminiscent of Yoda's ears. I thought it looked like something I wouldn't mention in mixed company. VERY weird looking!
Just a nice view, with the tall, tall trees lining the pathway to the gate.
One of many fountains in the garden. Oh, and yes, that's me standing in front of it!
Just a lovely view within the garden. I don't remember which section we were in at the time.
