First is you are really into botany. Here you can find nicely organized classification of all kinds of plants by climatic environment. Secondly, you need a quiet place away from city hustling/bustling that is within easy reach. You probably would need a maximum of 2-3...More

I visited 11 Novemberand the trees were colourful and losing their leaves. It’s a biggish park, but maybe less than a golf course. Lots of gardens in bloom, lakes, waterfalls and of course the glass houses which let warm climate plants grow in a cold...More
