A visit to Shangri La...

Shangri La Botanical Gardens

Nestled within 252 acres in the heart of Orange, Texas, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is a program of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation, a private foundation whose mission is to improve and enrich the quality of life in Southeast Texas and encourage and assist education. The unique ecosystem of Shangri La presents an ideal opportunity to further that mission as well as carry on the vision of H.J Lutcher Stark, the man who originally developed it more than 60 years ago.

Beautiful pictures! It looks like paradise to me.
My grandparents(both sets) used to go out on Saturday evenings to a bar called The Shangri La. It looked nothing lie this Garden by the way. They would call it the "Shang" for short.
Plus now, I'll be singing that song all day. Thanks a Lot!
