The National Mall - Made Out of Plants

Every year the Botanical Gardens puts up this amazing display during the holidays. In one of the rooms, they set up a minature version of the mall, done entirely out of plant pieces. In another room they have a train display, with wildly fantastic scenery for them to zoom around in. I took great pictures of it last year, but they all disappeared along with my computer, so this year I had to replace them. I put it off and off, and finally decided to take the day off of work on my birthday and go be a tourist. The funny thing is, I enjoyed pretending I was a tourist a lot when I first moved here 2 years ago, but now I just get really annoyed at the tourists and want to make sure they know that I'm a local. I guess I've truly become a Washingtonian. Anyways, these are a smattering of the Mall pictures.
