If you’re anything like me, then the only time you visit Birmingham Botanical Gardens is on the last possible day in late fall to get a family photo taken in order get your holiday cards done in time.
Well, I recently spent an unplanned day there and discovered how truly enjoyable this place is when the pressure of getting the perfect photo was absent from the situation.
Whether you feel the need to have a moment or just want to enjoy the scenery, the Botanical Gardens are a great place for a leisurely stroll. And you can always make use of the free wifi while you take in some fresh air on the many benches planted throughout the garden grounds.
And for you ladies who lunch, the Gardens Cafe by Kathy G serves up lots of fresh fare. I can personally vouch for the tomato pie – a savory, mouth watering treat. Definitely a ladies’ spot – take your mother or your daughter, or host a shower at this charming place.
Leaf and Petal, the onsite garden and gift shop, has loads of fun and unique home decor finds and of course, plenty of plants.
I loved discovering all the great home decor finds in the shop, as these next photos can attest.
There are so many opportunities to enjoy this Birmingham gem! And lots of upcoming events that you don’t want to miss at the Gardens, like Antiques in the Gardens and the always popular Cocktails in the Gardens. Hope to see you there!
