Botanic Garden

So the last stop in my Albuquerque trip was the Botanic Garden which was right next door to the Aquarium (you can read about that here)

I honestly fell in love with this place, it was just beautiful and very peaceful. The Bio Park  "includes a 10,000 square-foot glass conservatory, a 10-acre Heritage Farm, the PNM Butterfly Pavilion, a Japanese Garden, a model train display, and a whimsical Children’s Fantasy Garden." via 

We visited all of them, my favorite two were the Japanese garden and the Children's Fantasy Garden, the later one brought out the kid in me.

The Japanese Garden

It "hosts a majestic waterfall, an elegant koi pond and a mixture of Japanese and local plants. Stone lanterns and pagoda sculptures dot the grounds and stone and wooden bridges straddle small streams." via

Heritage Farm

The Heritage Farm was just that, a farm with a cute house, a stable, a grape vine and more. This section of the farm is a re-creation of a 1930s era farmstead.

 Children's Fantasy Garden

"There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to the hear it"
 Like I said it brought out the kid in me, I felt like I fell into the rabbit hole and ended up in Wonderland. Everything in the place was "giant size" so it makes you feel like you are part of the money "honey I shrunk the kids."
Although it was only a two day trip I had an AMAZING time, I am sooo gonna go see Luke Bryan again, and perhaps I am gonna take another trip up to Albuquerque and see what else the city has to offer.
