More updates for you all! At the end of April my co-worker and I decided to go to Mitchell Park Conservatory aka the Domes in Milwaukee for a little photo excursion. The domes are amazing to visit, especially with a camera! There are three domes each with a different theme. Two of the domes have permanent showcases, a desert oasis with collections of cacti, succulents, shrubs, and arid-land plants, and a tropical jungle containing a rich diversity of plants from the rainforests of five continents. The third dome is considered a show dome which showcases a variety of themes throughout the year. When we went the show dome had lots of spring plants like tulips, primroses, and mums.

Enjoy all the images and if you are looking for a quick weekend activity considering visiting the domes yourself! For more information visit the domes website at
