The 2012 Holiday Express offers a tropical theme
Madison’s unique recreational garden facility is hosting its annual holiday exhibit for the month of December that includes model trains throughout the Atrium.
The Holiday Express Flower and Model Train Show at Olbrich Botanical Gardens on Madison’ Far East side offers its holiday display in a tropical theme, including tiki sculptures, stained glass art and tropical plant life.
"(Olbrich staff) brought in some interesting tropical plants from our greenhouses, like palm trees with twinkling lights, along with an element of fun with the pink flamingos," Olbrich spokeswoman Sharon Cybart said. "Of course, we still have poinsettias and model trains, so visitors seem to be enjoying everything with a new twist."
The exhibit also incorporates holiday lights, the traditional Christmas poinsettias and large-scale model trains.
