I first visited the Santa Fe Botanical Garden in June of 2013 for their Opening night Gala. It was beautiful then and a wonderful beginning. I visited for the second time this Tuesday and found
it to be pure sanctuary with its casual indigenous plants, many radiant with blooms. My favorite
aspect however of the garden are the ramadas of various architectural styles and various materials that are scattered throughout the garden. I find them brilliant and very reflective of the old Hispanic
culture in the southwest. In my mind a quick 15 to 20 minute walk through the Santa Fe Botanical Garden is sanctuary. Small is good, it allowsfor a pause in ones day for your refection
and doesn't boogle the mind like so many other gardens with their extensive array of plants and such. I would recommend this to anyone whether they are wishing to take a break from the many museums on Museum Hill or just wishing sanctuary in the middle of a beautiful historic city.
The origami sculpture snow on exhibit are a very fun addition.
