Lee’s Favorite Gardens Redux — Asia

My wife, Lee, loves to visit gardens. I have learned to include gardens in all of our travel plans. There is something tranquil about walking between rows and rows of flowers or other interesting plants. Plants are so interesting and unusual too. As a former Science teacher, I can appreciate their many adaptations. Gardens often turn out to be highlights of a trip.

We have visited many of the world’s great gardens over the years. Here are a few that have left lasting impressions on us.

Garden of Gethsemane, Jerusalem, Israel — This was the famous garden where Jesus Christ was betrayed by Judas Iscariot.
