Gwen’s Excellent Botanic Adventure

Today is the day that we have been waiting for all summer – clear skies, a high of 75 and a cool breeze blowing. Finally it was nice enough to go outside! Gwen and I headed over to the botanic garden, bought a family membership and rolled all over the grounds.

The iris garden was mostly bare at this time of year but there were some pretty lillies in the fountain

and this interesting shrub. The new leaves were green but the older leaves were almost black and it had berries that ranged from red to green to black. Does anyone know what it is?

I put Gwen on a bench to change her and she was content to lie there for awhile and enjoy being outside.

We visited the Japanese garden and saw a gorgeous blue heron. He was too quick for us to get a pic.

Finallly we headed out through the wildflower garden

On the way to the car I asked Gwen if she had a good time. I took this as a yes.
