Road Trip

Oh, did I need a road trip and with my love of gardening the twins and I went to Powell Gardens
Their website states a road trip for the soul and it was just what my soul needed. I have been feeling so out-of-sorts. No passion for anything, a general lackluster attitude. This did help to revive me a bit, still working on getting back. A road trip with my always happy, always fun twins was a perfect Saturday. 2-1/2 hours in the car (one way), we played 2 games of the alphabet game and a long, long game of Railroad. Then another alphabet game on the way home. Kaitlyn read the second Harry Potter most of the day, she is the reader of the two.

Here are some photos from our day. Powell Gardens was featuring a Jurassic Garden theme and you can tell from this photo by Meredith.






How about this water feature, it is the island garden, I have seen it photographed in my gardening magazines. Wonderful to see it in person.



How about this group of Brown-eyed Susans



A woodland garden - beautiful stream and waterfall. Can you see the dinosaurs?


We visited for about 2 hours, the 95 degree heat kept us from staying longer but I will be going back. I can't believe I have lived so close and never visited before.

If you are ever in the neighborhood of this botanical garden, check it out. Let me know of any I should put down to visit, I am always up for another road trip.

  2. How nice to discover you live in my part of the world too -- or at least fairly close. We've been to Powell Gardens when visiting our DD and family. They live in the Liberty, MO area. We're in Spfld. I enjoy your blog!
