Como Conservatory, Minneapolis, MN

That’s where I took mama, daddy, my aunt Pat, Mike and Scott yesterday. Really Mike and Scott went to the zoo while we visited thousands and thousands of beautiful flowers, trees and so much more. We had a blast visiting with Pat and Daryle and then heading to the conservatory. We ended our day with a trip to Old Country Buffet for a fine afternoon dinner. It was perfect weather with just the right amount of clouds and sunshine and not to hot and not to cold. I have a zillion pictures I could share with you but will try and just pick out a bunch to show you. If you live anywhere within a hundred miles or so you’ve got to take the time to go and see this beautiful place. They have many different “shows” through out the year like Poinsettia's in the winter, fall flowers in the autumn and a summer display also. Okay, pictures…..

It was a great day. I hope we can do it again but with the gas prices right now it cost me $75.00 to go to the cities and back so I think it’ll be a little bit at before we can go but really can you place a dollar amount on the time you spend with family? Nope, so we’ll just go again soon.

Take care my friends, enjoy the spring show and have a blessed evening.
