Botanical Gardens, Dothan, Alabama

Dothan, Alabama is about 55 miles from our home in Georgia.  A visit to the botanical gardens is great no matter the season.  Lovingly cared for by mostly volunteering local people, it is beautifully laid out, with paved walking paths throughout.  We were lucky enough to hit it today when they had their annual scarecrow contest entries on display.  I sure realized by the time we had walked through that my imagination for scarecrows has been severely limited in the past.  Here is a sampling:

The roses were so beautiful - not all are fragrant, but when walking through the rose garden, the smell of roses is everywhere.
Well worth a visit if you happen to be in the area!
