The Botanical Gardens in Corpus Christi gets their last entry tonight. It has taken a few blogs to cover it all. It is a nice place to visit and cheap for the entry fee.
The Rose Garden is probably the only garden there right now without construction going on. The gazebo is wonderfully cooler than the rest of the gardens. Lingering there felt very nice.
The plants are all in raised planters. This view covers about 1/3 of the garden. Back in my other life, fragrant roses were my hobby. Here they mix them up between fragrant and show roses. That works out to be an excellent extravaganza of fragrance and beauty.
At various places along the walkways are special items. On interesting item is this resting couch made of masonry. Bring your own pillow if you are going to sit for long.
A bit past the couch, this shore bird is waiting to hand you a fish for your lunch.
Naturally after you take the fish, you need somewhere to sit to eat it. They have provided this nice picnic area for your enjoyment. Now where is the grill for cooking the fish?
Next is a couple of bright flowers to enliven the day and make you appreciate being alive and outdoors.
At the entrance to the humming bird garden is this very cute sculpture. It was about a foot high and two feet long. It was built to sway gently in the breeze.
And finally on the way out was this funny tree with funny flowers. Yellow flowers shaped like trumpets hanging down toward the pot fountain.
Hopefully you have enjoyed this very brief coverage of the gardens. When the renovation and construction is finished, these gardens deserve a very intense viewing. That certainly was a wonderful day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
