Was a lovely experience and definitely better than I expected. The glasshouse section with the canopy walk was extraordinary; full of butterflies and a nice jungle-like ambience. The flower gardens were in full bloom and were great. The Japanese rock garden was quite well thought out as well. Excellent garden and great for a casual stroll among the trees and flowers. Little rabbits and chipmunks can also be seen scurrying around the gardens as well.
I've only seen the enclosed areas as it started to rain right after we arrived at the Gardens. I was amazed at the attention to detail that they displayed to create this exhibit! I can't wait to sees the outdoor areas when we come to Cleveland next month!
