I wanted to roam a bit around Athens, Georgia, so I headed to Google looking for free things to do. One of the most highly reocmmended on the ‘to do’ list was a visit to the State Botanical Gardens.
Free? Yes, free!
I headed there, took advantage of my handicapped parking placard, pulled my walker out of the car, and headed in. I also grabbed my rain jacket since fat gray clouds threatened rain.
Free entry, but there was a $2 suggested donation. After dropping a $5 bill into the box, I stepped into the tropical garden greenhouse.
Then I headed to outdoor gradens but immediately fell into a conversation with a mother-daughter duo. The mom kindly offered to take my photo.
To the knot garden and herbal area.
To another area.
And back through the greenhouse to leave.
There was much I didn’t see because I simply can’t stand long enough. The walker helped a lot and extended my range, but there was so much more!
I got to my car, stashed my walker, tossed my purse, water bottle and rain jacket in the car, and climbed in. As I reached my arm out to close the door, the threatened rains began.
truly your ultimate Magical Mystery Tour, Emilie, and now decorated further by these Georgia flowers exuding fantastic colors and Life as you have lived, mi amiga!
Absolutely beautiful!!!! ( And the flowers are pretty too! 😁)
