We have had a lovely girl staying with us from NZ for the past few weeks, and in an attempt to show her interesting things in WI as well as celebrate my birthday doing all exciting things, we took a little trip to the botanic gardens. I generally judge a city by it's botanic gardens, Denver's and Brooklyn's are at the top of my must-see list! We had a lovely time walking through the gardens and enjoying the gorgeous flowers and plants! The rock and herb garden were some of our favorites, but no matter what anyone says.. the rose garden was the best. It always is.
