After years of refurbishing, the Tropical House has re-opened!  

While the renovation preserves the exterior's 19th century ironwork (think Eiffel Tower) and the fascinatingly eerie, iridescent glass of the windows,  the interior has been modernized to provide views from multiple levels and of several environments.






                          








Of course, the old favorites like the allées and rose gardens shouldn't be overlooked 






A current, temporary feature is the large map of France, so come learn your French geography, or just point out where you've been or where you are going....

I scrolled down and down and couldn't stop. Now I am really homesick. I am so missing Europe!
