Birmingham Botanical Gardens, a Cool Place on a Hot Day
Every time I visit the Birmingham Botanical Gardens I marvel at how fortunate we are to have these lovely gardens to stroll and enjoy. I also ask myself why I don't come more often. From time to time I will treat you to photos of this quiet oasis right here in Birmingham. Located in the Mountain Brook suburb south of Birmingham, it's a popular attraction for residents, visitors, and most of all photographers. It offers a wonderful education department, tours, gift shop, library, restaurant, and of course it's the perfect place for a wedding or reception. On a steamy summer day, it's the coolest place around.
