Garvan Woodland Gardens


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas, is a beautiful place to visit in the Spring.  Betsy and I have stopped there a couple of times on our way to 'our' cabin on Mt. Nebo.  The trails through the gardens are beautiful, and we've enjoyed daffodils, tulips, and of course, azaleas.  Garvan Gardens also has an extensive rose garden which can be enjoyed later in the year.

Takiego cudownego widoku mi trzeba było, gdy u nas za oknami biało od sniegu. Pozdrawiam.
Such a wonderful view I had while with us through the windows from snow white. Yours.

I love gardens and gardens open to the public. So enjoyable. We went to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum while in Az. and it was gorgeous--miles of hiking trails and everything done nicely. Most everything Cacti but other flora too. MB

Carletta said...

This looks like something out of a fairytale George.
Love it!

Linda said...

A lovely woodland trail. The azaleas look very natural in that setting. I like the curving path through the wood.

Neal said...

We've never been there but looking at your beautiful pictures it is some place we would love to go.

I look at this photo and wonder what it would be like if my wife and I really worked at having a well-planned garden. My guess is that we'll have to wait until the kids are grown.

Leovi said...

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

I could just "move in" to this garden. Lovely photo.

Janie said...

Very beautiful, and a great photo, too, George.
I love azaleas.

So gorgeous! I love azaleas in the spring, which I assume these are! Makes me think of Va! :-)
