What is a botanical garden? It is a garden dedicated to the collection, and display of a wide range of plants such as cacti and other succulent plants, herb gardens, plants from particular parts of the world. Through my travel I have stopped at these places and wanted to share some pretty pictures and some info about these gardens.
