A few weeks ago while visiting my daughter in NYC. She took me to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for a post mothers day gift. I was pleasantly surprised to find acres and acres of land in the middle of a city. This was the inspiration I needed to get some ideas for my new home garden ideas. 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. A more definition would be here.
When we were traveling in Arizona, botanical gardens are everywhere. the combination of succulent plants and flowery plants is very popular in Phoenix, Arizona.
Peonies are my favorite flowers. They bloom beautifully in the Spring and Summer months. Something that would look lovely in the garden.
Here is my daughter Leanna walking among the Rhododendron section in the Brooklyn gardens. Rhododendron are easy to plant and care for. They are a very popular botanical flower.
I love Lilac’s amazing scent. Fields of Lilacs made me want to run and jump right on top of them. Having a little section would be a lovely way to create a botanical garden.
