Green Bay Botanical Garden
by Mark Dwyer - posted 10/05/14


On my way back from Marquette, MI yesterday, I took a stretch break in Green Bay and enjoyed the Green Bay Botanical Garden.  While it was rainy and about 44 degrees F outside, I enjoyed the gardens immensely.  There were few other guests with the exception of a bridal party and guests having an outdoor wedding and probably wishing they had caught the 80 degrees F weather last weekend!  All these photos were taken yesterday and while signs of Autumn were everywhere, the gardens look great in their October glory which should be compromised shortly with frost.  Glad I made the stop and I always make the time when I'm up that way.  Don't hesitate to visit this botanical gem as I've seen this garden develop since the beginning and it's always exciting to visit.  They have a big holiday lights show coming up this winter as well!  All these photos were taken yesterday, October 4th.
