June 1, 2013: The Adobe House

Near the town of Cartago, there is a wonderful botanical orchid garden.

adobehouseMy mother had a great fondness for orchids and this was number one on the sightseeing-to-do list. She was definitely not disappointed. The park has a greenhouse to support the plant life, and the varieties of orchids are plentiful and are found not only here, but throughout Costa Rica. Visitors enjoy the blooms best during the months of March and April.

The park had an adobe style house for visitors to feel a sense of history there. I made of “The Adobe House” drawing at this particular place, although, original adobe style homes still stand in many communities.
