Imagine beautiful and fragrant flowers enclosed by glass panels in a botanical greenhouse with a paved path that leads you right through the heart of these exotic wonders; if you can imagine this awesome sight then you could possibly be at the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory.

Although this Botanical Garden is small, it is still a very beautiful to visit. The Conservatory is located at Wright Park in Tacoma. I was amazed to hear that this conservatory utilizes the plants confiscated at the U.S./Canada border crossings. This garden is also listed on the Washington State Historic register. The gardens are free to get into but of course donations are always welcome.

Inside the conservatory there is a gift shop and a short path that dead ends to the back of the gardens. Along the path there are several large trees surrounded by seasonal flowers and plants. The plants are interchanged throughout the year so that there is always something new in bloom.

I was impressed by this neat treasure that we found while driving around Tacoma. This garden may not be as large as other famous conservatories but it is still very beautiful and well arranged. This is definitely a great place to visit when you need a little color on a stormy Seattle day.
