Cathy Hoyt, Guest Blogger & Member, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

September was my first anniversary as a Member of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. I was a bit hesitant at first. Should I join? Should I wait a bit longer?? Will I use it?? I just wanted to post that my membership has been of the best gifts I have ever given myself. The Garden has been a classroom of sorts where I have learned so much about about the cycles of nature, wildlife and of course the never ending variety of flowers, trees and foliage that is ever present and ever changing. It has presented me with so many beautiful moments to capture with my camera…and offered me a “learning ground” for photography. Most of all it is my No. 1 stress reducer!! Ahh, tough day? I just drive over for an hour and relax. Thank you Lewis Ginter and to all the wonderful staff that makes this Garden the best!
