Checking out the gardens
The Botanical Gardens are spectacular at this time of year. I took the opportunity to visit Sunday, and was so glad I did. Last year, spouse and I became “Amis du jardin” and have enjoyed several visits to the gardens over the past year. It’s well worth the membership, with adult tickets at $16 this season, you’ve only got to go twice to make becoming a member worthwhile. Plus you get many perks, such as free entrance to the Biodome and Planetarium anytime in November. The wonderful thing about the gardens is that every time you go, it’s a completely different place. You’ll see different blooming plants on each occasion, indeed, I was so excited last summer to have caught the Lotus blossoms blooming at the Chinese pavilion. I just can’t say enough about this marvelous treasure we have in the city. To find out more about becoming a member, click here.
