Des Moines Botanical & Environmental Center

During our visit, my parents took us to the Des Moines Botanical and Environmental Center.

There were Kooi. Do you see them in the reflection shot above?

There were turtles. Do you see them in the shot above?

There were some beautiful specimen of bonsai.

The girls got to do a holiday activity.

The guys sat and visited.

There was a special room with suggestions for your garden at home. I thought the shot above was funny in black and white.

Paint-by-number, anyone?

I love to visit botanical gardens and conservatories. Midwest winters can be long and it is always nice to find a bit of green to brighten ones day. The girls love to visit them too. I know C took lots of photos while we were there.
