Western Kentucky Botanical Garden

Back in August we went to Owensboro to go to the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden. When Alan and I lived outside Philadelphia we had a garden pass to Longwood Gardens and I loved it. Flowers and gardens and my thing and it was so nice to be able to visit an amazing one 20 minutes down the road from us whenever I wanted. So, when we moved back to Indiana I was hoping we would be able to find something similar relatively close. I have been wanting to visit garden in Owensboro for years and finally made it happen. 

It's not a big garden, in fact we only spent about an hour there, but it was nice. I think it's maintained mainly by volunteers so parts of it weren't planted or were in transition. 

I really like that it had different types of gardens, from a formal rose garden, to an herb garden to a children's garden. Plus all sorts of sculptures and a few water features. 

It's definitely no Longwood, but it's nice to know that there is something similar nearby. Now if only Evansville would create a garden like this!
