Matthaei Botanical Gardens

Guess what we found today! Okay, so this may not be a big deal to some of you, but I hadn't really heard about it before and I had no idea how awesome it would be when we headed out.  I did a google search on public gardens and up popped Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
I think we all loved it, here are some pictures from our short trip

A little grove of trees near one of the many ponds on the property


Love all the yellow!



I remember growing these on the side of the house when I was a little girl


One of the water features in the outside gardens.


A little moss and succulents with some volcanic rock


We had little white roses like these in our wedding


Fall is just around the corner


But there was still a butterfly to greet us!

There were lots of wonderful things to see and signs to read.  None of which were too wordy or boring, but quite informative.  We loved the children's garden and will definitely be going back soon!
