Taste of the Tropics

Sometimes you just want to get away from the cold. When the mood strikes, I can drive for just a few minutes and reach the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. I was there recently. Come along, have a peek!

 Blue Skyflower


 Look at the color of this tropical hibisicus!

 The "Living Wall" in the front lobby


Paperwhite (oh, they smell good!) and Amaryllis

Just a brief visit to a nice warm place where the flowers are beautiful and coats are not needed! A great respite for winter weary folk!
