Hi Ladies, Pepper sent me this link, sj.. we went Sunday... very enjoyable time, will HAVE to go again. I was taken with everything! Loved the sanctuary, the water gardens, the conservatory, and the new "childrens" part they are working on. Here's a couple shots I got..
I'll have to say I've started planning to get more flyers in my yard. I left milkweed plants growing for the monarch's this year, but I need more bloomers around the perimeter. Pepper said they will catch all the butterflies in the conservatory, box them up and send to Wichita, Ks for a display there. Once it is over, they will live out the rest of their lives in Wichita.. Here's one I captured in my own backyard BEFORE our trip to Powell Gardens.
Pepper, Mel and I remember seeing the sculpture exhibit/sale at Mo Botanical Gardens a year ago June.. I saw a couple I'd put in my "rustic" gardens but I know they cost more than I earn in a month, so guess I'll stick with my plastic flamingo and homemade gazing/bowling balls- lol
