We drove a short distance from the hotel over to the Garvin Woodland Garden. We had another coupon, and we got in for the senior rate $5 minus $1 each took the golf cart tour which was $6 each. This was very enjoyable. There were snowdrops and crocuses out, and some daffodils, some camellias, and an occasional azalea. There were a lot of water features, waterfalls and bridges.

Afterwards they asked me to fill out a questionnaire about how we had liked it, and one of the questions was what other Botanical Gardens we had visited. I started to try to list them and remembered 12 of them, but I forgot the Santo Domingo Botanical Garden, the Birmingham Botanical Garden and the Brookgreen Gardens in SC. That would have made 15.

*Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden
*Bellingrath Gardens
*Harry Leu Garden
