Last Saturday was the local plant exchange that our friend Dayna holds each year at a local nature center. We brought a few starts, and brought back a few lovelies in trade (I'm not sure, but I think I'm the one in the family who has the most fun!).
We always take a tour of the center after we've safely stowed our new green babies in the van. The native wildflower trails inspire us to make our own native garden for the benefit of wildlife and ourselves.
(Looking for frogs hiding in the duckweed is pretty fun, too!)
Near the nature center is a beautiful botanical display, the Kauffman Memorial Garden. This was our first time visiting, and we were enthralled with the many different flowers and plants. I think our favorite part was being misted by the fountains and sprinklers, since it was a hot day~
(Who knew that Kansas City has its own iris, which is a lovely blue and white?)
Thank you so much for stopping by, and for sharing our day with us. Until next time~
