After watching the gravel barge go through the locks and visiting the fish ladder, we walked around the Carl S. English, Jr. Botanical Gardens. Here are some of the lovely plants we enjoyed.
I was going to do a little research to get the names of the plants I've pictured, but the Wenches have been dealing with a different kind of adventure this past week. So just enjoy the pretty pictures.
This is one of our favorite trees in the whole park. It's magnificent! It's huge and towering with a full and rounded shape plus golden-green soft needles/leaves. We think it's a type of cedar. If you look closely, you can see Wing Nut and Diva Dog looking for squirrels beneath its branches.
