Botanical Gardens continued....

After the greenhouse, we walked around in the outside gardens. They were very pretty.
The colors were so vibrant and varied.
A "red hot poker" was the name of this plant. It was already past its prime but unusual, nonetheless.
A beautiful red maple
Loved the pinks......
Encore azaleas
The pictures don't do the maple justice. It was such a bright red in the sunlight.
Iris is my very favorite flower.
I was in flower heaven!!!
