April is THE Time to visit the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden

Last year, I was in the botanical garden around this time as well, but this year, they have a newly rejuvenated wildflower meadow and it’s amazing.

I knew that the Botanic Gardens had been working on this big meadow and hoping for something spectacular, and I think they have achieved it.

    Wow! How fortunate you are to live close to this!

    We miss being close to the Denver Botanic gardens….not enough to move back there, however!

    Enjoy!
