You Know It's Spring When.....

The Mobile Botanical Gardens has its semi-annual plant sale.  I've attended these for several years, although I rarely purchase anything. They do specialize in native plants, which is good. I just like to go and look around and get ideas. 

This year's sale will be held March 26-28.  I've attached some photos that I took at the sale last October. 

Admission to the gardens is free and tours are self-guided, which makes it nice if you are in the mood to explore.


My daughter snapped the shots of this beautiful butterfly. I probably followed him around for ten minutes waiting for him to hold still.

The herb garden.

I plan to go back again this year when the azaleas will be in bloom (hopefully) and get some pictures along some of the lovely winding paths.
