I recently worked at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, and took some photos with my phone so I could give you a flavor of what it’s like there.

I was busy, so I didn’t have time for close-ups of the flowers or trees – just some general shots to give you an idea of how pretty the place is. (I apologize for the poor quality of the photos!)

The garden is located across from the Folk Art Museum on Museum Hill Road.

Because it’s Santa Fe, there was a lot of whimsical art mixed in with the plants. Also, lots of storm clouds.

Also, lots of Agastaches and Penstemons, and Sages. And roses and ornamental grasses, and evergreens, too. The plants and trees were planted thoughtfully, with room to grow.

And I spied a couple of tiny fairy gardens, like the one below. (I noticed some young girls leaving offerings of apple slices, grapes and potato chips.)

I believe the fairies would’ve enjoyed this bouquet of flowers:

These horses are located near the entrance:

After awhile, the storm passed (after unleashing torrents of rain), and the sun came out, showcasing the colorfulness of the garden:

It’s a relatively small space, but peaceful and quiet. I wish I’d had more time to explore and read about the plants there.

If you visit Santa Fe, you should check it out for yourself. I hope you enjoyed this mini tour!
