It was nice. It was manicured and polished but it wasn't what I thought and especially for the price (paying for parking?). The Christmas section was on point and fun. Loved every part of that. However, it's hard not to compare to Fort Worth. Fort worth has my heart. When I think of a botanical garden, I think of this deep and beautiful connection of earth and us. We get out of its way so that the garden can flourish and we the bystanders can submerge in this divine growth. In other words, we move around nature, not the other way around. Just my perspective. Or maybe I sound crazy and I've watched too much Secret Garden. I will go back at some point, to reassess my opinion and give it another change. It was my first time and I do need to be more open minded to other approaches.
