When I go new places I make it a point to see gardens because they remind me about the good things in life. Pretty things. The settings for many of the gardens are just so serene too. I could lose myself for hours in a garden if left up to my own devices.

I enjoy underwater gardens as well... alas the closest I have been is when I snorkeled in Maui and going to an aquarium from time to time. But there is always time to change that.
