Olbrich Botanical Gardens

The Olbrich Botanical Gardens, much like the Allen Centennial Gardens in the previous post has free admission, and is a series of [much larger] gardens connected together. The Botanical Gardens are rather large and lovely. A great mid-pandemic daytime activity.

Rather interestingly, the gardens have the only Thai Temple (architecturally speaking) in the USA, or something to that effect. I really appreciated the shift in planting in the different garden "rooms", but it's most obvious around the Thai Temple.

My favorite spot was likely the vegetable gardens. It had a very potager feeling to it, which is always nice - mix the decorative in with the utilitarian, and the whole thing is just so nice to sit in.
