We had the blessing of being able to attend our good friends' son's wedding in Boise, Idaho. The reception was held at a beautiful botanical garden, located just outside the walls of what used to be a penitentiary (interesting place to have a garden). The penitentiary is surrounded by beautiful (is that okay to use to describe a prison?) rock walls. It was built in 1870. The garden was so lovely and I was able to take lots of photos and thought you might enjoy a little tour. It was only 95 degrees that day.
The turret still has the sign "WARNING Guard Dog on Duty"
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed the garden.
