Interior, Route 66 Diner, New Mexico

We visited the US Botanic Garden’s annual “Season’s Greenings” display titled “Roadside Attractions” featuring plant-based recreations of iconic sights from across the United States, with G gauge model trains chugging around, below, through and above the displays.

This is the interior of the diner in the picture below (but in a separate exhibit). Taken through a very low, very small “porthole” and a bit challenging to photograph.

Building materials: salal leaves, palm bark, acorn caps, eucalyptus leaves and pods, pintado hearts, butterfly bark slices, walnut shell, willow, grape vine, cinnamon, gourds, Harry Lauder’s walking stick, birch bark, bamboo, turkey tail fungus, sea grape leaf, badam pods
