a walk in the woods

We walked through Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden┬áSunday morning until the rain chased us away. It’s a magical place – the oldest public wildflower garden in the country – with cultivated but naturalistic woodland & prairie gardens. I’ll be back mid-summer to see the┬áprairie flowers in full bloom but on this cool, cloudy morning, I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet simplicity of the woodland flowers shining in the shade.

08.24.13 road trip

The other day we enjoyed a visit to the West Central Research and Outreach Center at the University of Minnesota – Morris. Me in a large public garden is pretty much like a kid in a candy store. Minus the stomach ache. More on that trip to Morris coming soon…
