Sightseeing

One of the things we did with our guests, that were visiting from Houston, is to go for an afternoon walk in the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens




I can remember as a teenager coming to these gardens for the first time. The one hundred and ten acre park is very well maintained, and most areas are free, with the exception of the Japanese Tea Garden that is worth the nominal fee.

A favorite of mine is the Rose Garden

I was happy to see that there were still some roses blooming
Especially these pink ones
If you come to Fort Worth a walk through these gardens is a must.

    1. I think you are referring to the water gardens, which are downtown.
