New Pathways @ The Botanical Gardens

While attending the rose show the other day I stopped by my favorite spot in the city - the Botanical Gardens. Work is still being done within the gardens. They are paving the concrete paths, building new paths and clearing old brush. I was delighted to see that the wooden and stone paths in the exotic plant area have been completed. As you can see in the above photos there are a maze of paths weaving about the exotic ferns, trees and plants. There are also benches strewn within the walkways and ponds around the area as well. I absolutely love the look and feel of this spot. I'm already planning my next contemplative writing marathon within these exotic paths. More on Wednesday. Enjoy!

Wow! I can see why you like it so much. This zigzagging wooden path looks mysterious from the pictures. I love wooden walkways. The fact that they are building new paths sounds like the most exciting part.

I have never been here before. Seems like one can't get lost here with the walkways leading you around.
barb, glad you like it.

rainfield, I do too. The wooden paths give it an earthy look and feel.

vanilla, you're welcome and you'd love it.

WildOaks, It is very peaceful and inspirational. I go there often to write.

Ratty, I would love it if they built them around the entire garden.

Z, I'll send you a list one of these days :)

Mountain Woman, Thank you.

lina, they are beautiful aren't they?

Thanks Icy.
