Botanical Gardens

IMG_0475

There are many things I love in life, my family, friends, photography, etc.  But as everyone knows I love Botanical Gardens, Arboretums and nature of all kind.  Well on my birthday I got the above tattoo.  It means “Botanical Gardens” in Kanji.  I got it because I’ve always wanted a tattoo and to remind me to pursue one of my dreams of seeing and photographing as many gardens as possible.

So far, to date, I’ve visited the following.

Holden Arboretum – Ohio
Stan Hywet Gardens – Ohio
Cleveland Botanical Gardens – Ohio
Orchid House – Millers Reserve – Ohio
U.S. National Arboretum – Washington, DC
Biopshere 2 Center – Arizona
Desert Botanical Gardens – Arizona
Tucson Botanical Gardens – Arizona
Sahuaro Rose Garden – Arizona
Boyce Thompson Arboretum – Arizona
Mesa Community College Rose Garden – Arizona
Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens – Kauai, Hawaii
Fred Meyer Sculpture Gardens – Michigan
Dow Gardens – Michigan
Japanese Tea Garden – San Francisco, CA
Buchardt Gardens – Victoria, B.C., Canada

The above photograph was taken recently at Dow Gardens this Summer in Michigan.  I am very happy with my tattoo, I really do love it and what it represents to me.  I hope you will enjoy seeing my photographs from the above gardens as I post them periodically and hopefully add to my list!

Can anyone suggest a garden I should not miss?

    This garden was my tram stop during my study abroad trip. It was small but lovely to walk past everday!
