Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Naturalized Stream in Kangaroo Exhibit (Busch Gardens, Tampa, Florida)

Naturalized Stream in Kangaroo Exhibit
December 16, 2010

It is rather slow on the garden front here in the blistery north so I thought I would share a few gardening related pictures with you from our recent vacation in the sunny south.  As mentioned yesterday we enjoyed visiting Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida twice.  The grounds in this amusement part are amazing!  While there are rides there are also various exhibits where you can interact with or get closer to the large variety of animals.  In addition to the exhibits you can take a free train ride around the park or you can get up close and personal to the wild game via a safari tour.

The kangaroo and wallaby exhibit has several of each on one side with a wooden fence set up so visitors can feed them.  Meadering through the exhibit is this gorgeous little naturalized stream conplete with waterfalls, home to waterfowl, fish and several species of plants.   This type of stream but on a smaller scale is something home gardeners to easily add as a water feature in their gardens.  Isn't it pretty?

Happy Gardening!
