Even though it's not as spectacular as spring, Garvan Gardens still offers plenty to see while you leisurely stroll through



and, if you get tired....inviting places to rest

I see a lot of work in that neatly manicured path as compared to the kaos of nature.

Thanks for the kind comments, guys. We feel very fortunate to live in the Ouachitas, and I'm particularly happy to have a place like Garvan Gardens to go shoot any time I want. It's only a few miles from my house, and my wife and I maintain year-round membership which allows us unlimited access, even during off hours. These gardens are owned by the University of Arkansas's School of Landscape Architecture and are a favorite place for weddings, receptions, etc.

Paul,

Don't know why these scenes remind me of some Shakespeare:
  • First Witch: "When shall we three meet again / In thunder, lightning, or in rain?" [/*]
  • Second Witch: "When the hurlyburly's done, / When the battle's lost and won."
[/*]
Act 1 Scene 1 from Macbeth.

This garden looks like a great place to relax after the hurlyburly is done.

Aloha
