Happy Arbor Day!
We took a trip to our local botanical garden: Red Butte Garden.
It was cold and windy and we didn’t have coats, but the flowers were lovely. It was almost 80 yesterday! We even saw snowflakes. brrr
We rode the train and bus to be all green and the kids were ecstatic to finally ride that train downtown!
We should have brought jackets. It was still awful cold downtown.
We were quite fascinated by this Dwarf Cedar of Lebanon
Tori, Katie, and Alex tried out all the swings in each little garden exhibit.
This was in the herb and medicinal garden, which was probably my favorite area.
The children’s garden was fun and cute with snakes and lizards all over the place!
This lovely little grotto offered a much-needed respite.
We walked as far as this waterfall and then headed back to eat some lunch and head home. Oh, how cold they look!
We really loved this paperbark maple. It was just budding out and the trunk with that bark is so lovely.
So many different kinds of daffodils, narcissus, jonquils, etc.
a beautiful flowering crabapple
We definitely want to go again, when it’s warmer and the roses bloom and to see some of their new exhibits that open this summer!
