I've been trying to get to the Botanical Gardens of San Antonio since I read about the Mexican Consulate's exhibit of Wings of the City by artist Jorge Marin. We all tried to go last week, but it rained cats and dogs (and hail), so our trip got cancelled. So yesterday Mari and I went on our own (both Johns were busy doing something else) Thankfully the day was beautiful! Here are a few of the 9 statues that were on the grounds:
I have to say, I enjoyed the Storybook Houses very much! These playhouses were built to represent specific children's books. They were quite whimsical!
I really enjoyed the children's vegetable garden, too. They are months ahead of my garden which tells you how great San Antonio's weather has been this year.
The whole place was beautiful, and I highly recommend it. We'll be going back this summer during Mimi's Summer Day Camp during Bug Week for their Winged Wonders exhibit. It begins on June 4th and runs until late fall.
