I woke up a couple of Saturdays ago and felt like roaming around a garden. I wanted to walk among lush foliage and colorful flowers, listening to the bees buzz from afar. Sunken Gardens is a short drive from our house, so we decided to head there.
When we arrived at Sunken Gardens, I was surprised to see so many people there. I was worried that our garden stroll wouldn’t be as peaceful as I was hoping. It ended up being a relaxing and fun experience, despite the many visitors.
Vibrant flowers were in bloom, draping the walkways with color and life.
Towering trees offered us shade, as we explored the grounds.
Cacti grew into the sky, creating the perfect opportunity to grab minimalistic shots.
Tropicals transported us to far away islands.
Whenever I visit Sunken Gardens, I always take an extra minute to enjoy one of my favorite trees – the rainbow tree (Eucalyptus deglupta). The tree is native to the Philippines and Papuasia.
Incredible isn’t it?
