    Favorite Botanical Gardens

    i never thought of daffodils in Utah

    Or turning à former state prison in to a garden (Idaho)

    Where are your fav hidden gems ?

    I realize we can’t cross the border or pretty much go anywhere right now in BC ... but it’s fun to imagine

    I like
    Sunshine Coast Botanical (a work in progress on an old plant growing nursery, mainly trees, hence the orderly rows. Good bird watching too.)

    Summerland Ornamental Gardens at the plant research station nr Penticton - great view of the huge old KVR rail trestle

    Thé Living Désert in Palm Desert CA

    Lewis & Clark Collège campus south of Portland OR (ask permission at sécurity) - it’s an old estate built by the Frank side of the former big department store Meier & Frank (now part of Macy’s)
    w stunning views of Mt Hood and lots of huge rhododendrons

    Plus - So many plants and designs to observe just by walking around like @wcutler does!
