Subject: Re: Botanical gardens
Hi Terra,

My husband is in the gardening profession and we always include visits to gardens, botanical and private, in our travels. What area are you interested in? We really enjoyed a trip to New Zealand a couple of years ago in November. The climate on the north island is wonderful for gardening and their long days results in some tremendous plants. There is a wonderful guide to New Zealand Gardens. You can find information on it here. Palm Springs has several nice gardens to visit. The Living Desert and Moorten's Botanical Garden are great places to visit. But the best desert botanical garden is in Phoenix.

Actually, the desert sounds great right about now.
