Travel: Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

I loved the hardscaping in this photo and would love for
my (eventual) back yard to look like this

This photo doesn’t do justice to the Japanese garden

The cacti garden

This area was the most structured in the botanical garden

In an earlier post, I wrote about how much I loved visiting the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens (click here to view it).  Since I had time to spare on my trip, I decided to drive to Fort Wroth to wander through their botanical gardens.  They were stunning!

While the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are a little more structured, the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens have more of a laid-back, natural vibe.  I enjoyed meandering through, observing the flora, fauna and hardscaping, listening to the birds, feeling the cool breeze on my skin and catching the wafts of spring!

One of the highlights is the native Texas area, where a walkway separates indigenous and non-indigenous fauna.  This display showcases the negative effects of introducing non-native plants to an ecosystem.  My favorite part, however, was the Japanese Garden, which had a small entrance fee.  It was stunning in it’s simplicity and had such a peaceful aura that I wanted to meditate right then and there.  

Nature and non-nature lovers will enjoy the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens!
