Cleveland's Greenhouse

I love plants and nature but it's definitely not something that I photograph very often. That's probably why I tend to forget that Cleveland has a beautiful old greenhouse that's free and open to the public year round. This greenhouse opened in 1905 on a portion of the 270 acres of land donated to the city of Cleveland by John D. Rockefeller, the richest US citizen ever. The greenhouse has a huge collection of plants inside and out. The day we went it was unseasonably cold outside, which made the visit to the greenhouse even more enjoyable since it was nice and warm inside.

As beautiful as the plants were, one of my favorite aspects of the greenhouse is the architecture. It's classic Cleveland. Steel and brick.
