A few weeks ago, my 4 year old son and I played hookey and went to Bartram’s Gardens in South Philadelphia. The oldest surviving botanic garden in North America, the gardens are situated on the banks of the Delaware River. Part of the Philadelphia Department of Parks & Recreation, the garden is free for self-guided tours with guided tours available for a fee.
One of the many spring plants blooming in the wooded area of the gardens.
Two goldfish in the small pond hanging out in the shade of a lily pad.
I took many pictures of these yellow flowers. They looked like a wild daisy.
The vegetable gardens immediately behind the house. A wisteria arbor is nearby.
These ferns were in beds next to the house. I loved their fuzziness.
Down the hill from the main house is a community garden site for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
Many gardens will be open on Friday with special tours for National Public Garden Day. See if your local public garden is offering free admission for the day. Taking a tour is a great way to get your kids interested in nature walks.
