The conservatory in Baltimore is the second oldest in the country. It was opened in 1879. There used to be six of them across the city. Now there’s only this. These gardens. These people left to hold things up.

  1. so pretty! and those polka-dot cacti are amazing. (are we allowed to say they’re ‘on-trend’ for this fall yet? ha.)

    sad that people don’t feel the need to keep beautiful, nature-focussed places around anymore…they’re the perfect antidote to pretty much everything else in the city.

    I kind of wish the cacti had a floral print so it matched all the pretty ladies.

    I’ve been a long-time, far-away admirer of your blog, and I love seeing all of the beautiful places you go and photograph. As I moved to Baltimore last winter, I am impressed you can make this city look as dreamy as your past conquests.

    Are you from Baltimore? I love Druid Hill Park. Especially at sunrise.
