The Desert Dome

At the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, once again, this time in the Desert Dome. Here you can see plants from North and South America, Southern Africa, the Canary Islands and Madagascar.

I always find it fascinating to think that there are people who live in places where they see these kinds of plants every day. To them, they are probably nothing out of the ordinary. Thank goodness there are places like the Domes where people like me, who rarely travel outside the midwest can enjoy these amazing creations of nature.

  1. This was wonderful Sue. I am especially intrigued by the long, low to the ground cacti that look like furry snakes. I’ve never seen that before.

    • Many thanks for visiting, Marianne! They manage to pack a lot into these Domes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a diverse collection of plants in a greenhouse environment.
