Today I attended the Grand Opening of the new Botanical Gardens, Whistling Gardens

I posted a blog about the visit at GardenTenders

Here is a sampling of what we saw at the 18 acre gardens.

Very nice!

Your blog was a very good tour… better than I could find on their site… LOL

Those Kildeer eggs… did you see that big lizard about to have an egg meal?
... no wonder the mother was upset… I would think it would attack that lizard…
... maybe it did…

Nice job!

Thank you.
