Flowers Abound

Claire and I like to be members of things...we joined the Zoo a while back and earlier this month we joined the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.

I always thought of botanical gardens as sort of a large green house with lots of plants.

The Norfolk Gardens however, are not that...they are frigg'n huge with over 12 miles of trails and crazy plants throughout. There is a river than runs through it, big enough to kayak down.

Claire and I had such a good time checking it out. Here are some shots...

Memberships to those types of local attractions are so worth the initial expense when you know they make a nice little afternoon get away. The zoo has been a life saver for us some days!

Being an urban girl, I've grown to really love green spaces. Urban or country, it's amazing what grows from the ground!

I think that memberships to those kind of places is money well spent. Looks beautiful!

There is something spiritual about gardens/flowers. We have Longwood Gardens near us (fabulous).
