botanical goodness

we had some wonderful company last week. my aunt and uncle were so sweet to stop by and see us on their way to austin (not really at all on their was pretty much WAY out of their way!). we spent some time playing at the fort worth botanic gardens. one of my most favorite places that i have discovered since moving to the area! such a lovely place. and it was a super lovely day. crisp and chilly and it felt like FALL! the sky was a striking blue against the green, orange and red trees.

a quick stroll through the conservatory warmed us up!

little bits of pretty poking out at every turn...

but the absolute hit of the day was the japanese garden. seriously the best one any of us have ever seen! 7.5 acres of meticulous beauty! absolutely incredible. i could stay there all day! (click on the images to see 'em BIG)

i'll take this as my backyard please.

koi frenzy!

just fabulous isn't it!? you must visit if you are ever anywhere near fort worth! so happy you guys were here with me aunt judi and uncle tony!

Janel said...

Very beautiful indeed Jenn! I would say those photos rival the Bouchart Gardens in Victoria, VanCouver, Canada. They have marvelous Japanese Gardens too!

Glad you are enjoying Texas so far! now when are you coming to Denver??
