(Jan) There’s a beautiful garden oasis just south of the Iowa State Football field in Ames, Iowa called Reiman Gardens. Sunday we spent a lovely time there with Brent and Donna’s family after going to Hickory Park for lunch. Pictured above is a Dragonfly Sculpture, one of many featured around the grounds.
One of our favorite spots was the Butterfly Garden.
Despite the hot temperatures it was a great afternoon to stroll down the paths through the gardens enjoying the vivid colors around us. We ended our visit at their house eating dark sweet cherries and chocolate cookies. Yum!
