Visiting Botanical Gardens


Every chance I get, I go to visit the nearest Botanical Garden in my travels. This photo of Agave is from the Tuscon Botanical Gardens. I have been, not once, but twice (which is a lot considering it is 2000 miles away from home). Twice, because, the succulents are something worth studying as we move into a sustainable future. And, Tuscon’s Garden is quite a lesson in all types and shapes and blooms and colors. It is quite a beautiful place. The roses in this post are from the New York Botanical. All I can say about the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden is WOW! Sure smells good. New York’s Garden is on an amazing 250 acres in the Bronx. Probably our country’s crowning jewel.
