More of the Botanical Gardens


I wish  had written down the name of this plant because, of course, I do not remember.


So pretty…

Not all the plants are friendly:DSCN2096
In fact, quite a few of them are down right mean looking.

But these are the kind of plants I can actually grow—the kind that are full sun lovers, drought tolerant, do well in poor soil, and thrive on neglect.

Colorful, delicate, and spiny - a bit of everything!

Beautiful gardens!! Don't be so hard on yourself. If you were at your southern house 24/7 you'd have some of those beautiful plants growing in your yard too!!!

The Gardens are gorgeous. I really love that 2nd plant and all of the colors.

That second plant is very interesting. Thanks for the garden tour.

I love public gardens. We have some lovely ones around here, and fall is a good time to visit.

Beautiful. I bet its interesting to look at gardens so different from what you are used to up north.
