does anyone think Houston will ever get a legit botanical gardens? the ones in San Antonio are very nice and it would be a great addition to things to do/see around town. i know there are some smaller gardens, but why dont we have a full fledged botanical garden like many major cities?
After my adventures as a R&R drummer in the 60's I changed direction and got a job at Cornelius Nursery around 1971. I loved it, and it became one of my various occupations over the years. The work environment was wonderful-a riot of color and heavenly scents, the cool spray of constant watering, which intensified the fragrances of marigolds, phlox, jasmine and roses. Customers all seemed to be in a good mood there, so I ended up making the rounds of numerous nurseries in the next three years. But I forget their names, except for Gardenland on Westheimer, which was the last place I worked at before hitting the road for the Rockies in '74. There was a very well established place, in Bellaire, I think. And a small one at the intersection of San Felipe and 610, where I recall Dan Pastorini came in looking for some pots, with his buxom girlfriend. And a really really tiny one on Richmond, between Greenbriar and Kirby. Anyone remember these?
Is there any more news on the Garden District development? i noticed a couple of the East Ends planned street car routes travel down two of the streets in the proposed district. http://swamplot.com/kirkseys-vision-for-parks-on-the-shady-side-of-downtown-streets/2013-04-22/
