Covid-19 R&R Trip Continued

Garvan Woodland Gardens

The Garvan Woodland Gardens is a 210-acre botanical garden located approximately 6 miles from Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, United States. Owned by the University of Arkansas, it has the stated mission of education, research, and public service. I spent the majority of November 9, 2020, exploring and walking at the Garvan Woodland Gardens. I walked over, 16,000 steps while there. Beautiful fall colors greeted upon arrival.

Breath-taking scenery was the norm.

The garden was well manicured and maintained.

Natural stones were used for steps and walkways.

The pathways curve with the flow of the terrain.

Several small waterfalls were on the grounds.

A canopy of fall colors filled the air.

The bridges and walkways make moving around the grounds easy. The elevation changes were manageable.

Another beautiful bridge.

The coy pond.

The flowers weren’t as pretty as springtime but there were still flowers.

They were getting ready for Christmas.

Even fairies go to church.

Little fairy houses abound.

I think the fairies like to drink a pint.

There really is a tooth fairy. I found where he lives.

Walk-in, fly out.

Part of the fairy town.

More fairy city.

Maybe a fresh coat or a coat of paint would help.

Interesting fairy houses.

Getting ready for Christmas.

A view of Lake Hamilton. It surrounds the garden.

The Anthony Chapel in the woods. It reminds me of the Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, AR.
