Brookside Gardens

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 22 September 2014 in Plant & Nature.

Brookside Gardens is a 50 acre garden that is located in Montgomery County, MD. There are different sections that include a butterfly garden, an aquatic garden, a rose garden and a woodland walk. It is a very peaceful place to visit. I find that when life gets too stressful, visiting the gardens and taking photos is a great way to relax and to forget life's problems just for a little while.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."
