Southwest Botanical Gardens are magnificently kept and organized. They are BEAUTIFUL! I almost couldn't believe it. The one thing that sticks out in my mind, however, was right inside the entrance of the park, where there is a small, square rock area that holds several tiny little red cactus that they move every day to spell out the date. I think it's the date, anyways... it's in Kanji. Very beautiful pictures from the gardens, and they did a wonderful job of representing plants from all over the world. This was a WONDERFUL trip for us, and we enjoyed it immensely. Don't go for the souvenirs, though, the prices will kill you!!! :)
