These gardens are beautiful year-round. Every time we go there is something different in bloom, as well as beautiful trees and shrubs. Nice place to take a picnic lunch, and above average gift shop with a lovely selection of books and nature related items.

This is a beautiful place and very well worth the $7 admission price. Might be a little hard to entertain children under 8 there. Very peaceful and I will definitely return!
