Daeonsil: The Great Greenhouse at Changgyeonggung

Daeonsil: The Great Greenhouse at Changgyeonggung | On the Street Where We Live ( aretherelilactrees.com )  Changgyeong Palace, Seoul, South Korea

I don’t know how we missed the Daeonsil (대온실), or great greenhouse, when we first visited Changgyeonggung, but I was not planning on missing it again when it showed up on our Instagram search page last month. I thought it had to be a site in Europe, and as it turns out, the design was based on the design of the Crystal Palace in London.

It houses plants from around the world, and all the buds were just starting to bloom when we visited in late February. The controlled temperature created a hazy, film effect on these photos, which I love.
