Maria Fleming of Ottawa, Ontario shares highlights from a unique botanical garden in TX.
"I just returned from a visit to San Antonio Botanical Gardens and thought I would share some thoughts for warmer times.
The garden was established in 1980 and covers 38 acres. It offers a variety of more typical gardens – formal, display, Japanese, Sensory, and rose, but it also has a large area focused on Texas; 11 acres to be exact. One wanders through Hill Country, East Texas Pineywoods and South Texas dry land trees and shrubs. There's a bird watch area as well as several conservatories."
Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. Leonard Nimoy (Spock)
