  Gardens to Visit

Hi, I just visited McKee Botanical Gardens at Vero Beach Florida. Very nice place that I would recommend.

I would also like to add Stowe Botanical Gardens which is in Belmont NC. They just built a multi million dollar Orchid Conservatory, While I can't say much for it yet I hope in the future it will be something to see. It's not a collectors Conservatory since most of the Orchids are hybrids and easily obtained most anywhere. They do have nice displays but they really don't try to replicate natural habitat but go more for mass plantings and architectural design. Curiously, they have no pictures of it that I can find on their web site but an outdoor shot.


Here is my album of pictures when I visited soon after their opening in February.
