San Antonio Texas...Visiting Botanical Gardens In Winter
While travel in winter would not seem to be the best time for visiting botanical gardens, they are really both fun and beautiful as well as less crowded this time of year.
Of course winter in Southern Texas is quite a different thng than winter in Chicago Illinois, where we live.
There didn't seem to be much space devoted to lawn. Not even at the entry.
Plenty of color, ground covers and wide walks from which to enjoy the setting.
Small garden beds,
and desert habitat.
My favorite though was the trails through native plantings and some old buildings from Texas history.
That porch was a perfect spot from which to view the pond and the abundant wildlife. I can imagine shelling beans for dinner and enjoying a breeze. Might need screening from the mosquitoes during summer but evening would be heaven.
