National Public Gardens Day is May 11

National Public Gardens Day may be on the way, but you shouldn't wait until May 11 to enjoy a couple I can recommend. Here is the first one:

  Stop by our Butterfly Garden at Matzke Park.  Things are in full bloom.  I took these pictures this morning

Here is the second stop I recommend:

As you know, we are a great fan of Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens at 22306 Aldine Westfield Road in Humble. The gardens at Mercer are part of the east side of the 325-acre park that includes 5 miles of walking trails.  Mercer shelters more than 24 rare plants and several of the plants are on display to view close-up as guests walk around the trails in the Endangered Species Garden.

Mercer recently had a really nice write up which you can see by CLICKING HERE   It also has a couple of great pictures.
