They have placed a display of 400 tulips, daffodils, and calla lilies inside of the Mediterranean Conservatory at the Botanic Gardens for their Spring Blooms Flower Show. With a little luck, the daffodils, tulips, pansies, and other early spring flowers might be blooming outdoors around the gardens as well. Only Mother Nature knows for sure. ;-)
We will meet in front of the ticket booths at 9:00 am. If you are running late, just come join us inside of the Conservatory. From there we will be going outside, weather permitting, to see what we can find blooming. A trip through the Aquarium is in order for those who have the time/interest.
Tickets for NM residents are $9.00 for adults, $4.50 for seniors 65 and older and include admission to both the Botanic Gardens and the Aquarium for the day. Parking is free. Bio Park hours are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. They also have discounts for students and military.
This is an informal meetup at a public venue. Everyone will be able to explore the gardens and aquarium exhibits at their leisure and free to leave whenever they choose. The Shark Reef Cafe inside of the Aquarium is a fun place to have lunch for those who choose to stay awhile and perhaps have a bite with their fellow shutterbugs.
