Golshan Garden

  Golshan Garden is yet another garden located in Iran.  This one is in the city of Shiraz.  It was built in 1863, and contains a former royal mansion, an historical weapons museum, and a Persian garden.

    The garden is full of tropical palm trees and gorgeous roses.  The most notable feature is the rectangular pool with spraying fountains.  Birds seem to like it, too.  Everywhere you go, you see pelicans hanging around.



The garden is open daily from 8 AM to 5:30 PM.

  3. I'm ready to set up a chair there and read. However, for Texas, my backyard is looking okay - lots of purple salvias right now. It can all go to brown quickly, but guess I'll stay here for now....and go read. Happy Easter. I look forward to Monday and H.

  6. Pelicans in a garden? Now that's different. I've only seen them on the beach. I need to get my kids out to one of our area gardens. It's been too long.

    1. It's kind of amazing that there are pelicans anywhere in the area. The desert is so close to these gardens.
