There is an herbal garden that has lots of medicinal herbs and plants and some trees. I had Bob take a photo of this lemon thyme because I want to remember to plant some. If you run your hands over it...the oils stay on your hand for awhile...and it smells so good. I love smells like jasmine, orange, pine, eucalyptus, most all of the herbal smells that are sometimes used in handmade soaps. Having the plants around the house would be even better. I have grown some outside in the past, but I think I will try some indoors. I read at the gardens that roses have a lot of medicinal properties to them, and that just smelling them can improve your mood. I love the smell of our peonies when they bloom. They should be blooming in another week or so....depending on the weather.
Here are some glass colored bulbs in the large fountain in front of the Climatron.
The Japanese Gardens.
It will look very pretty in one more week, when all of the azaleas are blooming.If we lived closer I would visit here as often as I could. It really puts you in a peaceful state of mind.
