Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens 3 – July 11th

A little close up if some of the water lily’s at Powell Gardens. I broke a rule by stepping out on the rocks to snap this shot. I’m such a rebel! Even more fun was the signs I saw after I walked away from this area. “Don’t climb on rocks, Snake habitat!” Oops!
Now had I seen those signs before I probably wouldn’t have climbed on the rocks. I really don’t like snakes, at all, yuck, yuck, yuck! But I suppose it was worth it to get a photo of the flowers.

Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens 2 – July 9th

Another beautiful photo from my visit to Powell Gardens. They have this beautiful garden of water plants. One of the coolest things is they had plants, like succulents growing out of the walls around this particular garden. But there is this spot where you look out over some gorgeous water lily’s and listen to the sound of waterfalls. It was so beautiful, even though the day was kind of cloudy.

Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens – July 8th

Sorry for not being on here very much lately. I’ve been so busy with work and life that there hasn’t been much time to blog. Forgive me!

Over the 4th of July holiday I had the chance to go see Powell Gardens. It is a beautiful botanical garden near Kansas City, Missouri. I had so much fun and so this week I will be posting photos from the trip.

Today’s photo was taken at the entrance to the garden, lovely! The sounds of the waterfall and the tropical plants were beautiful. But I loved the ceiling of this room, almost like the entire thing was a skylight. It let in this soft light that was so calming. I sat in this spot and enjoyed some yummy homemade blackberry ice cream that they have. So good!

Have a blessed day!
