Because plants are jealous of our ability to live indoors, they attempt to infiltrate our finest mansions and universities by slowly climbing stony facades.

The 120-acre Huntsville Botanical Garden is a year-round source of botanical bounties, with horticulture-loving visitors able to spy an array of gorgeous plants, from Japanese cedar in the winter to daylilies in the summer. Plant perusers can learn medicinal uses of common plants in the herb garden, practice whistle harmonies with the nature trail's melodious bird population, or write haikus about their devotion to limericks in the new Washio Ishii bonsai display. Junior leaf-hunters grab the spotlight in the 2-acre children's garden, filled with eight different activity stations, including fossil displays, a real Space Station node, and a bamboo musical garden. And until February 28, visitors are encourage to bring their dogs for the “Dog Days of Winter” festival, when their four-legged friends can pounce around the “No Leash Zone,” take a couple doggie classes, or explain the science of photosynthesis by barking the periodic table.
