flowers! beauty! blue skies and palm trees blowing in the wind!
there was a small cactus garden, very nice. everything in the whole place was just laid out so nicely, and obviously the people who designed it really knew what they were doing.
i’m in love with this tree! i was instantly drawn to the bright yellow blossoms, high up in the air.
a double buttercup tree! it even has a great name! i want one!!!
i love this little hut because it really reminds me of gilligan’s island.
now that’s a giant lego hummingbird.
mom pointed out that there was a sign in front of these giant lego blocks that said DO NOT TOUCH. she felt this was just wrong, that there were these awesome huge blocks and kids couldn’t climb on them.
pileated lego woodpecker! and we’d already seen a real one in the yard of our darling rental house!
one more thing i’d never seen before, a teardrop croton. the little teardrop shoots were great. i want one.
this is the only lego behind glass – a lego orchid.
this totally makes me want to buy some legos and start building…there’s even a lego kitty! and a lego dog! and that might be an alligator up on top; it was a little hard to see it up close.
a GIANT lego orchid!
this was the asian garden – not the most extensive one i’ve seen, but of course it was lovely and well-designed.
by this point we were almost ready for lunch, and we were eager to try their cafe on the grounds.
