Does your town/area have a botanical garden?
Have you visited it? Do you like to visit botanical gardens when you travel? If you have visited gardens in other areas, do you have a favorite?

Toledo has the Toledo Botanical Garden and we have visited it! And Bowling Green has the Simpson garden park, not exactly a botanical garden but still--- and my DH is active in the design and planting of it.
Visiting gardens is NOT one of my favorite things, however. So I don't have a favorite...
Visit me at That Yank In... and Traveling with That Yank
There's the Bogor Botanical Gardens (Kebun Raya Bogor in Indonesian) about an hour away from Jakarta.
I was there a few months ago. I should plan a trip soon!
Singapore has a beautiful botanical garden, which I visited many years ago. When I lived in Lyon (France) the Parc de la Tete d'Or also had a botanical garden which was beautiful.
I don't think my area here has a botanical garden. I don't usually visit them because of a childhood experience. I'm terrified of snakes. We went to a botanical garden for a school field trip and there were gardner snakes everywhere and I freaked out and it's ruined me for them now. : )
How neat that your DH is active in designing and planting a garden park. Even if the "formal" name is not a botanical garden, that counts in my book.
I have only recently become in interested in seeing the designs etc. of different gardens. I know my garden will never look anything like that , but.....
Thanks for stopping by.
That is really neat that you have been to gardens in so many other parts of the world. It sounds like you enjoyed the Bogor Botanical Gardens since you would like to return.
Thanks for stopping in.
