Sunday At Botanica


Happy Monday!  Remember how I said we might go to the state fair?  Well, that didn't happen.  We worked on school projects (Hat Parade!) and went to birthday parties.  The girls received invitations to two birthday parties, but unfortunately, the parties were at the exact same time on the exact same day.  It worked out, though.  Mr. B took Little Sis to the younger girl's Hello Kitty party, and I took Big Sis to Botanica for a Brave-themed party.  While we there, I took some pictures.  The summer flowers are fading, and the butterfly house is full of huge butterflies that will soon be released.  I found plants I would love to have in my own yard someday:  Easter egg plants, pumpkin peppers, hairy balls...

    1. Those are actually chimes! There's a little path with big chimes and drums and things for the kids to play. It's all part of the children's garden.

      And thank you! It's a Canon EOS Rebel T3. I have a zoom lens, but otherwise, I just use the lens it came with. I'm slow. ;)

    1. Is it about one of the plant names? I figured it spoke for itself...

    1. Oh, that must have been wonderful! I only went to the gardens here sporadically, with the exception of the Christmas light festival. They added the children's garden, though, and the girls and I have visited much more frequently! I love seeing it change from season to season. xoxo
