During our travels, I always look for opportunities to visit gardens. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the local flora and fauna as well as gain ideas for my own landscape challenges. The San Diego Botanical Garden provided a great opportunity to learn about area vegetation as well as become familiar with plants from around the world that share the same ecosystems as San Diego.
The gardens are lush and provide a great hike on paved paths. Sculptures are incorporated into the garden settings to add interest and charm. However, the show stopper for me, even as an adult, was the newly opened children’s area! Kids, young and old, are provided with a great area to play and learn. The designers of the children’s area also showed great creativity taking common garden tools and summer fixtures to create interest. Weber grill covers will never look the same to you after you have visited the children’s area. For those who remember Lily Tomlin’s Edith Anne, take a moment, jump up and sit a spell in the giant Adirondack chairs. And that’s the truth!
