Meijer Gardens, Grand Rapids, MI - a horticulture lovers paradise!

I've had several people tell me about Meijer Gardens over the past few years, and until I went and saw the place myself, had no idea how gorgeous the place is!  Is a horticulture lovers dream come true.  My son spent about and hour and a half there yesterday and barely scratched the surface of all the things we could see.  We spent most of the time in the children's garden area which had a huge tree house, sand play area, children's sensory garden, and area with sculptures, and more.  Also, we went to a victorian themed garden area, a tropical garden area, and a desert area.  Next time I want to take the train which goes around the whole garden.
