In the tropical dome looking up.
Golden Barrel Cactus
I love this cactus, it looked like a snakeThis past weekend my husband took me to the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee. The "Domes" were first opened in 1967 (which is before my time, by the way). There are three "domes" with each one hosting different types of plants. There is a desert, tropical, and a floral show dome. As a child my grandparents often brought me there, as they were both gardeners. I remember there being lizards, turtles, snakes, and other animals in the domes, but I only saw birds this time around. I really enjoyed the show garden dome. Right now it houses a miniature railroad garden complete with the famous Wisconsin circus train and Oscar Mayer wienermobile. I loved the railroad garden, since just last year I started to dabble in miniature gardens. Here is video of the railroad garden.
