These are pictures of a water lily, that I took when a friend and I visited the Botanical Gardens, in Birmingham, Alabama.
This July my husband and I visited family in Denver, Colorado. In the many times we had been in town before, we had never made it to the botanical gardens. I was determined to get there this time. To my delight, when I got on-line to check the hours I discovered that there was a Dale Chihuly glass exhibit in place throughout the gardens. We spent several hours there and had a great time, thoroughly enjoying the plants and the gorgeous glass work. Here are some photos from our trip. As you can see there were fantastic tall exploding spines, beautiful globes and spires rising from the lily pond. Snake and bird like forms rose from the foliage as we enjoyed more examples of this gifted artist's work. Of course the flowers and plants were beautiful too.

We recently visited Washington DC and went to our National Botanical Gardens. What a feast for the eyes! I saw amazing plants and trees that I never knew existed and even got to walk along an upper balcony that felt like walking amongst the canopy of the rain forest.
This was a giant sprinkler at the Daniel Stowe gardens. My husband is getting a nice mist of water from this pond with a walk way built in the center.

I was fortunate enought to be able to go to England. Kew Gardens is the home of King George. Remember the movie "The Madness of King George"?
As beautiful as the flowers are, their fragrance is even better.
Botanical gardens are beautiful places to visit to see rare and unusual plants. Additionally they have specimens from other areas not native in your locale.
