    really all of these wonderful photos with a blackberry? how many mega pixels does it have? anyways great skills.
    @delphiguy--It's a 3.2 MP camera, which is the same as my old Sony. It has a shutter lag though that is sometimes tough when you're grabbing a pic of the kids or something.

    I love seeing the structure of the glass house.
    @BD--Yeah, the glass houses they have are amazing. I have a few more pics I should share that give you the full scope of the houses. The first one is not mine, but is open source. The second one is of a fiddle leaf fig tree they have, and the third one is the orchid area showing the non-hanging bloomers. They have orchids spread in all of the different biomes as well. Had a had a real camera with me, I might have gotten some better shots of the whole area in bloom.

    @ Rich-- They still have Blooms & Butterflies. Stopped with the kids down there thanks to google while looking for a park in Columbus. They were doing it that first time.
    @ Jen-- Alright, I have a couple more photos. Bruce, I promise this is the last server space I'll use with these pics!!
