A Flowery Day!

Last Friday, we went to a place called Longwood Gardens. They were having an "Orchid Extravaganza."
There were orchids all over the conservatory, but there were also a lot of other pretty flowers in bloom!

It is hard to imagine how big the Conservatory is - it is much bigger than our backyard!

We saw a lot of Columbines.  These were a very pretty pink, but they come in other colors, too!

We discovered the Children's Garden in the conservatory, too.  It has fun scultpures and fountains, walls, spiral stairways and lots of surprises!

We brought home 2 miniature violets to remember our visit.
