Here Are 8 Beautiful Gardens You Will Only Find In Iowa

Going for a slow stroll through the garden, surrounded by beautiful flowers, with the faint floral fragrance drifting through the air is just about as close as it comes to paradise on Earth. But, for those black-thumbed gardeners like me, it can be frustrating when your own garden doesn’t really…grow. No worries there; luckily for us there are plenty of beautiful public gardens in Iowa that we can tour whenever we want. Better yet, you don’t have to weed them to enjoy them!
