My daughter and I were quite disappointed in these gardens. The walk was nice and shady. We kept hoping to see the flowers and only saw a few. Maybe we are just spoiled with other botanical gardens we have been too. There were few signs to indicate what the trees, shrubs, etc. were. The mansion was interesting, but it does need some work (hence the high price of admission?). We did not enjoy the recycled plastic artwork -- not our cup of tea. If you just want a walk in the woods, then this is your place. If you want to see beautiful flower gardens -- go somewhere else.
