  1. I've been there! We spent several days in Memphis and that's one of the places we visited. I got some great turtle shots, too.

  4. Sherry, this Blog is such a tease! Every time I read about one of these gardens I find myself longing to be there. Sadly I am about 4,000 miles away.

  5. This is really pretty. I'm near enough to the Denver Botanic Gardens that it shouldn't be such a problem to visit, but it's been years since I have. My work schedule and my lack of funds tend to keep me fairly well confined.
    Thanks for visiting The Diary of Debauchery.

    1. I'm sorry you'll have to give up your garden. Maybe you can still have potted plants around.

      Enjoy your Sunday!
