One of our favorite places to visit when we make a trip to Birmingham is the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. When the flowers are blooming it's impossible not to be inspired and amazed by this extraordinary jewel of Alabama.
A tranquil haven amidst the busy city, the Gardens have places to sit and read or trails providing a bit of exercise. Spring is especially beautiful at the Gardens. Masses of tulips and pansies display their colors.
From the trails through the Alabama Woodland area to the Japanese Garden there is so much to enjoy. Bring a picnic for a peaceful lunch or spend a couple of hours exploring the many trails and gardens.
