Madison's Gardens

We set out to enjoy Madison's free gardens. The first one we visited was the Olbrich Botanical Gardens which is spread out over sixteen acres. There was just one themed garden after another: herb garden, rose garden, perennial garden, woodland garden, etc.

I loved these pyramid-shaped pots. There was a series of them hanging off of a rail.

We noticed more than one volunteer per acre: actually, they were all over the place, planting, watering and even scrubbing the sculptures. It was encouraging to see so many working to maintain this beautiful place, all for the love of a garden.
