Wonder why I led with this? Other than it being my Grandmother and mother’s favorite song and it brings beautiful memories. Our topic this week is the Most Beautiful Place I Have Ever Been.
Since I haven’t been a lot of places I chose the one thing we look for when we vacation and that is a botanical garden. My husband got me hooked on them when we took our first vacation together. It was to Chicago. I never had been so he thought it would be nice for me. We went to museums which I loved, The Zoo. The aquarium and Pier, but of all the places we went there my favorite was the Botanical garden. We walked for hours, sat and watched the birds and butterflies. It was summer and there were lots of flowers blooming. My favorite was the rose gardens.
Another great vacation was St Louis. We saw the arch, Zoo, museums, but again my favorite was the Botanical gardens. One year it featured statues by an artist, the next was some glass features. We walked in and it took my breath away. I choked up with tears of excitement. my hubby still teases me for crying when we walked in. All of this glass hanging around like spheres or sitting around was gorgeous. We always would splurge and eat at the cafe. I would get a garden fresh sandwich made on fresh baked bread and veggies grown there, like squash,mushrooms and eggplant. It was delicious. It looks like this year they are having glass and Metal art. I wonder if I can get a stop there on the way home from dads.
So give me a botanical garden and I am one happy girl.
