No, Sheila, (wish it were our place). This photo is from Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, AR. The lady who lived here willed it to the University of Arkansas, and they continue to keep up the work she started.

Thank You! @plantladylin The woman that owned this property by one of our lakes in Hot Springs was a plant lover and devoted her life to creating this beautiful garden. At her death she donated the property to the University of Arkansas. When we visited in the spring some of the students were busy in the tulip bed.

How awesome that she donated the gardens to the University! That Tulip bed and the surrounding area is so pretty!

I keep saying I'm going to visit Gavan Gardens & never do. We're about 2 1/2 hours away & Hot Springs was a favorite vacation spot. Now that my husband can't go hiking we don't go up there.

@Kathy547 Since we visited there, my husband has developed knee problems and can't walk very far, which is so sad, because we always loved visiting state and national parks and doing a lot of hiking. BTW where do you live?
