Warsaw Biblical Gardens
If you're looking for something a little bit different, check out the Warsaw Biblical Gardens in Warsaw, Indiana. The gardens cover about 3/4 of an acre and contain hundreds of plants that are named in the Bible.
The gardens were started by Saralee Levin and a few of her friends. They decided to take an eyesore and create a collection of beautiful gardens. These include a meadow, wet-dry brook, orchard, grape arbor, desert, gathering place, forest, and crop area. Each garden contains a plaque that lists the spiritual reference or biblical story associated with it.
Admission to the gardens is free, but if you want an hour-long tour, the cost is $2.00. The gardens are open from May 15th through September 15th from dawn to dusk. The best time to visit to see spring flowers is April 1 - May 1. The best time for the most color is May 14 - July 4. September to early October is best for viewing the fall meadow displays and grasses.
