Day three of my trip to ABQ, NM I visited the ABQ Botanical Gardens with a new friend, Si. One of Amy’s housemates, Si is a NM native, working on getting into medical school. He’s been all around the world and had many stories to share, making for a pleasant walk through the gardens.
I will never tire of visiting that place!
Si at the entrance to the Japanese garden:
The flowers! Much was blooming, including more familiar garden flowers as well as some of the cactus:
Ever see a goose groom itself? Neither had I. Watched it splash around in the pond, scooping water up with its neck, splashing its back with water. Then, it got on a rock and proceeded to groom between feathers with its beak. Using it’s neck, it rubbed all over it’s back. GOOSE YOGA. Made me laugh!
It’s a long walk thorough the gardens! Much to see. I recommend a trip to the ABQ Botanical Garden if you’re in those parts. I’ve been in the spring, summer and fall, now. Each season gives a different view.
