I just have to share our experience at the Munsinger Clemens Botanical Gardens today. We started the week out at 103 degrees, today is a nippy 50, and the splash pad just wasn't going to work. Based on a friendly suggestion, we threw on our wind jackets and went in search of these beautiful grounds.
I'll just roll the pictures since words won't do. I really feel like we stumbled upon a private oasis where surely we'll become regulars.
First rule of becoming an explorer . . . find a GREAT stick.
Axel must have "taken a rest" on every memorial bench. Sweet.
. . . and then we found the upper gardens. Although I begged, he simply wasn't going to turn around for the camera. One word . . . FOUNTAINS!
Missing a photo opportunity with this duck . . .
. . . I convinced him that a more subtle approach to duck photography is best (notice the mallard in the background).
