The Project Beauty Shakespearean Garden at Botanica in Wichita, Kansas [Travel]

The Project Beauty Shakespearean Garden was amazingly beautiful. It was the first garden that we walked through when we got there and had a beautiful, classical fountain made of 120 hand-cut, dry-laid stones, right smack in the middle of it. The Shakespeare bust looks out over the rectangular garden with poise. The flowers and herbs found in this garden are mostly those mentioned in the works of The Bard himself.  It's a charming little piece of an elegant collection of gardenst that make up Botanica in Wichita, Kansas.
On the way out of the garden, there are some beautiful Shakespearean verses on metal panels with depictions to go along with them. My pictures are by no means perfect, but they'll give you an idea of what was going on there.  There are several other gorgeous gardens at Botanica, so if you're ever in the Wichita area and looking for something to do, you should totally check them out, especially if you trend toward the bookish like a lot of you might!
