You encounter this sculpture, by a small lily pond, just before entering the admission center.
This recirculating waterfall/pond
was very nicely done. There's a little bronze sculpture
of a child holding a frog at the left.
My grandson is posing (for me) in front of another sculpture.I was quite excited about seeing the English Gardens.
They really were beautiful,
but I mistakenly was anticipating English Cottage Gardens.
Definitely not the same thing! ;-)
I like symmetry, but I'm not quite THIS particular about it!I would LOVE to return to this garden for another session! It was a beautiful morning's tour.
I will post more of what we saw on The Grandkids' page, hopefully sometime this week.
This view looks towards the prairie area, as we left the grounds. The sprinkler was too much for my son-in-law and grandchildren to bypass. They had a wonderful time cooling off! :-)
