Many of us love having plants in our living spaces because of their health benefits and aesthetically pleasing nature. If you have a fascination for learning more about the art of greenery, we suggest a visit to the U.S. Botanic Garden’s ‘Celebrating New American Gardens’ exhibit open now through October 15th. The exhibit is intended to highlight trends in the country’s best gardens from the past 5 years through photos, drawings, landscape designs, and project descriptions to put the viewer in the eyes of the botanical artists.
