We are members of the local botanical gardens. I enjoy this membership as its one place that is always changing. It changes with the season as well as the holiday. You may even get an exhibit passing through that stops there for a period of time. Over all however you get to experience the freedom to roam, see what's growing at the present time and stop to smell the Roses!
I love a good tree. They all have their own personality. With or without leaves the gardens have an abundance of trees just like flowers.
Beautiful historic bridges that also make a great photographic backdrop.
Caterpillars are in abundance in the summer time. I even got too see some I have never seen before.
If you keep your eyes open you will see more then just caterpillars and butterflies.
A squirrel in the tree in such a odd way had us talking about camouflage.
Our Rose gardens bloom twice a year! Lol, I said our like I had a part in this.
A wildflower field is another great photographic backdrop as well as see the variety of flowers in a wild and carefree area.
It's not all about the flowers and trees. Random berries or seeds decorate the trees making them unique.
Lastly, there is always time to stop and smell the Rose's!
Now that the holiday season is here we will go back to take a ride through the gardens at night with the holiday lights.
