Botanical Conservatory- Egyptian Pleasure Garden
July 11 - November 15, 2015

By the time of Ancient Egypt’s New Kingdom period, the nation’s wealth allowed for pleasure gardens at the homes of the most well-off.  A pond with colorful fish and lotus flowers, shade trees, palms, and flower beds provided a cool retreat. Fruit trees and grape vines added to the banquet table, while papyrus clustered at the water’s edge. Visitors to our summer-into-fall garden can relax in the shade and admire a distant view of the pyramids.
