This weekend I decided that even though I am really busy planning lessons (and will be for the indefinite future), I can't spend all of my non-at-work-time working - I would go crazy! Combine that with spending all of my non-at-work-time in my teeny tiny apartment and you have a recipe for stir-craziness. As such, I decided to go to a local botanical garden called the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens.
I recall taking quite a few trips to Kanapaha as a kid. I always enjoyed going there, which seems kind of odd considering that I was never into gardening. I'm still not, although at least now I can go with photography as my purpose, and I do appreciate plants a lot more than I did when I was young. The park is a lot larger than it used to be, and the old building that served as the welcome center and gift shop is now all closed up, replaced with a large, modern building with event halls and such. However, despite the changes, the park seemed very much the same place that I remembered.
