Birmingham Alabama Cont...

Better late than never….
I am continuing my post of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens but thought I would start out with a couple of photos of the city as well.  
The airport has a living wall which I thought was really nicely done.  

Throughout the city there are beautiful plantings, water features and settings.  The city as a whole is very lush and green. 

 Now, for the continuation of my Botanical Garden tour….  Here are the photos of the conservatory. 
 More of the sculptures that are prominent throughout.  These are of Aesop's Fables.

  I thought they did a great job- it was neat to see the desert area, we have basically every single plant they had displayed, so that was fun to see.  I love it when I can ID the plants almost as much as I like seeing and learning about new ones!!

 Hope you enjoyed the tour. If you get a chance, it is a wonderful place to visit.
