On the way, we had 2 field trips. First a short stop at Graham Cave State Park, where we had ALSO been before. Then a longer stop at Powell Gardens outside of Kansas City. It was amazing! And SOOO hot. We walked around for a couple of hours though and got some good food in their cafe.
A large part of the botanical garden was dedicated to food gardening. You could go up in this silo to view the gardens. A large part was laid out like quilt patterns, mostly with vegetables and herbs.
We liked this old bed that was being used in a veggie garden.
And I liked this gourd hen house too!
There was also a gorgeous water garden section with rock wall plantings and lots of lily pads.
The garden also had an exhibit of lego art, so here are some of our favorites!
Finally, I loved this statue of the rabbits. The one on the left looks so annoyed. Like "OMG. Get off me, it's like 95 degrees."
