Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden, USA - 28th October 2007

By: carlissa

I went to the Harvest Festival at Fairchild Gardens today with Carlissa & her daughter and Mumble! 

First, I went rock climbing:

Then, it started raining, so we went to the conservatory and saw lots of pretty plants and orchids.  When it stopped raining, we went to the Fruit Pavillion - here I am sitting on a bench in front of the Fruit Pavillion:

Then I got to sit on a giant mushroom:

After seeing the Fruit Pavilion, we went to the Sunken Garden.  It was very pretty and had a waterfall and a pond with some lilies and fish in it.  After that, we walked around some, and I met this really nice lady named Margory Stoneman Douglas (she wrote a book on the Everglades).  I helped Carlissa release a Bookcrossing book, Margory said she would make sure a nice person picked it up:

Then we went to look at the decorations that were at the harvest  festival - we saw lots of ghosts, witches, pumpkins, and a pirate ship!

I was getting hungry, so we went to eat lunch.  We ate at the Rainforest Cafe and I ordered the cattledrive sandwich and a soda.

After lunch, we went to a Halloween decoration-making demonstration.  A lady showed us some of the decorations that she made from palm fronds, coconuts, and other plant materials.  Here are some ghosts that she made from palm boots:

We were all tired after all the walking around the gardens, so we went home to rest.
