A Day Out of Doors

We spent part of the day today at the Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen. Here's a gem we never knew about before! It's 1,000 acres of plants, fountains and this summer, art.

They showcased different kinds of landscaping. I got a kick out of the "suburban landscape," as if that isn't all around! But it had great examples of awesome plants to put into some small spaces like our backyard.

The Japanese garden was a hit, for one very special reason -- FISH!

Wayne and girls also took a little woodland walk, next to some wetlands. Hard to believe that there were reeds and cattails only a few feet away on the right.


  1. Very pretty! How far away?

  2. About 15-20 mins. It's in a south-western 'burb.
