The Garden

I took a walk not too long ago through the Landscapes Of Canada Garden at the Museum of Nature, having had decided to photograph it from time to time. Click here for the last occasion. The Garden shows plants and topography from various parts of Canada, including mammoth steppe, tundra, prairies, and boreal forest.

  18. @Lon: just click on Museum of Nature in the tags- I've paid visits in here before, and they're all in there.

    @Tamago: they are quite a sight to see, as are the plants around them, which the real animals would have known in their time.

    @Marianne: I like them too.

    @RedPat: it has been a dry summer. A lot of these plants seem to be resilient though.

    @Bill: it's a wonderful museum.
