Garvan Woodland Gardens

2014-04-09 094edA little over 2 weeks ago we visited Garvan Woodland Gardens near Hot Springs, Arkansas.  This was our second visit to the Gardens and will certainly visit it again in the future. For those who enjoy botanical gardens, Garvan is a treat, with its setting in the woodlands on a peninsula stretching out into a scenic lake.

I incorporated most of my photos and video clips into a 4 minute video – including intro and closing credits.  I’ve also developed an information page on Garvan Woodland Gardens which will be listed with other info pages I’ve created along with pages from other blogs on Haw Creek Destinations.

On our first visit to Garvan, we didn’t have any water or snack with us and regretted it.  On this visit, we were better prepared and, because of that, were able to cover more ground – not that we were hurrying.  We explored for several hours, took plenty of pictures, and still didn’t see all of the gardens.

    Beautiful place, beautiful video. Thank you.

    Were you affected by the tornadoes?

      Thanks. 🙂

      We were in the storm shelter for a tornado warning from 5:10 PM to 5:30 PM, but nothing came of it other than a little rain where we live. The bad tornado damage is 60 to 80 miles east of us. The Mayflower area is one that we drive through whenever we go to the Little Rock area or elsewhere to the east. The RV dealership that was destroyed is one we stopped at when we were first researching recreational vehicles about 8 years ago. I’ve also driven through Villonia quite a few times over the years. It’s heart-wrenching to see and hear what’s happened there — and a little scarey, too. But, then, damage like this, even though it’s a long path intense storm, is really very narrowly focused, covering a relatively small area.

    I showed the video to Andy tonight. When we go visit Kaitlin and Torben we always go to the Chicago Botanic Gardens. We would all love this one too.

      We’ve visited several over the years, the most frequent in recent years Olbrich Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin, near our youngest daughter and her little family. The most fantastic was Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, near Victoria.
