Unfortunately, there was a hitch. It was raining. A lot. We're from Seattle, but c'mon Berlin. Good sports that they are, they accompanied on my fools errand and we got very, very wet. Trying to keep up our spirits, we tromped though the soggy grounds. I apologized.
But then we found it - the conservatories! Yes, the acres of forest, Italian & Japanese gardens, & lake are glorious - but the conservatories are where it's at in the rain.
|Yeah, those are raindrops|
|Awesome cactus section|
|P's taking a break|
|Enticing walkway..that you aren't supposed to use :(|
