Benches are scattered for breaks along the paths to stop and reflect on the beauty of the gardens.
Beautiful arches with wisteria gracing the crossbeams make for gorgeous backdrops to pictures.
I can just picture someone sitting on these benches and contemplating life while they sketch whatever their eyes light on.
My SIL, Theresa, and my daughter stopped for a moment on the butterfly bench. Another pretty place for a picture.
My daughter and I stopped for a photo op at the top of one of the rose gardens.
Speaking of roses, the aroma was positively intoxicating as you walked through the many varieties of roses.
Roses aren't the only variety of flowers here at the gardens.
This arrangement was one of my favorites. Remember in the fall when I told you about container gardening and the rule for creating spectacular containers was to have a Thriller, a Spiller and a Filler? Can you pick out what the gardeners used in this container?
Thriller ~ I believe it was rutabaga.
Spiller ~ Possibly pansies or violas.
Filler ~ Parsley and some other little flowers
Stunning, isn't it? I absolutely loved how they combined fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers in the containers and flower beds. How is that for some inspiration?
The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens even have a Japanese Garden that you can tour. There is a minimal cost involved with walking through this one.
So, there you have it...a true gem in the heart of the city. I simply cannot say enough about this gorgeous local attraction. It is simply a lovely place to walk about, to be inspired and spend time in nature. With 110 acres of meticulously maintained gardens and over 2500 species of plants, you'll definitely want to put this on your list of things to do and see in Fort Worth. I hope you enjoyed the picture tour. Wish you could have been with us! Maybe next time. ;-)
I'm linking up at some of these great parties and
