Garden tour: Silver Springs Botanical Gardens.

If you’re ever in northwest Calgary during the growing season, make the Silver Springs Botanical Gardens a priority stop on your list of places to visit.  I can’t believe I’ve lived a little ways down the road from this gem for years and never got out to experience it until a couple of weeks ago!  A stroll through this 13,000 square feet sequence of flower beds alongside the Crowchild Trail sound barrier is a serious treat.  Adjoined by heavily bark-mulched walking trails and the cool quiet of the two acre 2002 Birthplace Forest, touring the Silver Springs Botanical Gardens is a great relaxing way to spend a sunny afternoon.  I didn’t want to leave!  🙂
