It was very beautiful and had lots of pretty things to see. The trees and flowers were pretty for what was out this time of year. The weather that day was awesome sunny 70’s and clear sky. Great day for a walk.

This is a great place for seeing many unusual plant species. It's like a zoo for plants -- educational, fun, pretty. Nice gift shop, too! I loved the unusual palms and cycads.
