Today is the first day of Spring :) It is also still the minions' Spring Break so we headed to the Botanical Center today. It has become something of a tradition. One of the reasons we go every year is that they have special activities for the kids during this week. Plus, we had not been since they remodeled/renovated. The orchid wall is gone now, and some of it is still under construction. It didn't seem like they had as many cacti out and I didn't see my fig tree either. Of course that doesn't mean that they didn't stick them somewhere else... We didn't see the turtles or many fish either. They did have a lot of cool leaves going on though.
In no particular order, some photos of our trip today into the humidified 80-some degree dome of bliss.
One of the special activities this year was natural weaving. I cannot tell you how much I love this idea and am a little irritated that I didn't think of it myself... They had a larger loom set up in the center itself but the kids could weave their own "wands" as well to take home. We will be making these again!
A few closer views of the work in progress.
Little miss made this wand.
I just like palm shots in black and white. Don't know why, but you can see the green versions on my Flickr page.
I don't know what type of plant/tree this is, but tell me this isn't the Ood of the natural world.
Happy Spring, Everyone!
Next time, the Fiber-y stuff. Promise!!!
