I wish I was in Tallahassee so i could see the gardens right now! Everything will be blooming, and it will smell lovely! however... I would rather go for the luminaries in the fall, or when they have it open at nights all decorated with lights.... regardless. I'd go anytime. Maclay Gardens are beautiful, you could spend the day there, or just go for a picnic. Amazingly, they are never crowded and you could walk a whole trail and never see anyone.
