Botanical Gardens - Cacti Garden

One of our first dates that I can remember is Ben dragging me to the botanical gardens and being pretty relieved when it was over. Guess what three years together, has done to me? yup...it's made me appreciate plants! I think that's such a nice thing about dating someone that their interests rub off onto you :) Just to prove I'm not lying I actually suggested we visit the botanical gardens this time, no prompting needed, he he he! I was wondering if Winter would cause the visit to be more boring than pretty but the gardens seem to be designed with the various seasons in mind. I actually took way too many photos so I'm going to break it down into two posts, today you get the cacti!









 I love cactus and made a bee line straight to them!
