I had never been to the Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens over in Humble Texas. But after going with Nancy, Sebastian and their family, I would strongly suggest it for anyone in Houston. It was completely free, they take wonderful care of their plants and landscape, and it was just a peaceful experience altogether.
In the back corner they have a little Japanese area set up. On a side note, I need a bench like this!

Thanks Sebastian and Nancy!
