Botanical Gardens

DSC_0042

Yesterday, I went to the Botanical Gardens with my folks. It was quite a lovely time! There are so many rows of beautiful flowers that It's nearly overwhelming. It was lovely walking around, snapping too many photos, and picking out my favorite blossoms. The Botanical Gardens also has various wonderful poems by Federico Garcia Lorca that deal with spring and nature throughout the whole garden, so that was a great surprise. Last year, they did the same with Emily Dickinson's poetry and even created a little garden showcasing flowers she referenced in her poetry. All in all, it was a great day!

And, just for kicks, I figured I would share one of my favorite Federico Garcia Lorca poems that I read today:

  3. I love the botanical gardens. They are so beautiful. I need to go back soon. And you've reminded me that I need a straw hat, i feel like that's a fashion blogger necessity.

  16. I loved the Botanical Gardens when I went there. It was during the Cherry Blossom Festival so it was uber-gorgeous :D I kind of wish there were fewer people, though, because it makes taking pictures that much more difficult....
