Last weekend my parents had the opportunity to visit Des Moines. (YAY!) Along with checking out a few different shops in the East Village and eating lunch at the infamous Zombie Burger, we decided to swing through the Des Moines Botanical Gardens. It was exactly what I needed to pretend like Iowa weather was a little closer to spring. With an 80 degree interior and about 80 percent humidity, I could have spent the day basking in the sunlight, watching the Koi fish, and checking out the neat and exotic foliage.
Here are a few snapshots from the trip.
Seems like a pretty good place to write some lesson plans, right? I think I might grab a bench and check it out this weekend.
