Smallish but thoroughly enjoyable. Can do in 2 hrs or less. Opens at 7 am, a plus. Easy to find. A must-see while in the area or traveling thru (not far from main hwy).

Great place to teach kids about different plants. Lots blooming. Even bugs in the bushes, which is great because you know it is not over pesticide. Lovely walks and gorgeous trees. Greenhouse was special.
