I am an enthusiast for Olbrich Botanic Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. As a horticulture major at UW-Madison in the early 1970's I visited Olbrich's dahlia garden during my course of study in floriculture. The dahlia garden was impressive then, but the Olbrich Botanic Garden of 2014 has come a long way since 1974. It has expanded with well designed and maintained gardens which are a delight in any season of the year. (http://www.olbrich.org/)

I recently visited the Sydney Botanic Garden in Australia, and it was actually a bit of a disappointment. The design and color impact of our own Olbrich Botanic Gardens has spoiled me! So here is a little walking tour of this year's Olbrich Spring Garden Show. With the harsh winter we have endured the vibrant colors and the smell of warm earth was a boost for my sagging spirits! Enjoy my photos, then head over to Olbrich and experience it for yourself!
