Are you a garden lover? Like to take long strolls through acres of plants in absolute silence? My personal favorite place to do this is at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. The grounds are so spectacular that I can literally spend hours there just walking around.

Here are 15 gardens around the world that you might want to seek out if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

1. Jardin Majorelle — Marrakech, Morocco

Toronto has been such a surprise; it’s such a beautiful city, and I’m saying that with just seeing a small portion of it. I cannot wait to see the other gardens and plant shops around the city. Recommend me things to do if you’ve been! . #toronto #plantsofinstagram #plantswineverytime #houseplantclub

If you haven't been to the spectacular @ruthbancroftgarden, GO. This succulent paradise was the first preservation project of The Garden Conservancy, and is a living testament to the vision and dedication of now 108-year-old Ruth. 100% #westcoastcraftinspiration

Golden views in our Acacia Passage. Fun fact: Our Acacia Passage gets its name from the cinnamon wattle (Acacia leprosa) that has been grown here since the Passage was constructed in 1919. . Photo by Carol DeGuiseppi. . #LongwoodGardens #goldenhour #AcaciaPassage #Conservatory

While the template remains the same, this view is ever-changing. The lighting in the morning is very different from what you see in the evening, and many of the plants change from one season to the next.⠀ What's your favourite season or time of day in the Sunken Garden?
