New Orleans Botanical Garden

The New Orleans Botanical Garden is located in City Park, due northeast from the French Quarter. From the French Quarter we took the 48-City Park/Museum Streetcar. There is a lot to do in City Park. Too much for one day, really. We spent most of a Saturday afternoon there (last April) at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) viewing an exhibition called Hard Truths - The Art of Thornton Dial. After that, we wandered around the beautiful Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. By the time we got to the Botanical Garden we were a bit tired and probably didn’t appreciate as much as we should have. Though, the shade of the live oaks (Quercus virginiana) was very much appreciated.
