The girls and I went with some friends to a local garden that I had never been to and had so much fun. It is located in a residential area and doesn't seem that big from the outside but once you are in the back it just opened up into a beautiful garden area! There were several small ponds with fish, fountains and lots of of brick paths leading in all different directions. It felt like we were in a small maze. We saw bunnies, squirrels, birds, mice, and a gopher feasting on the bird and squirrel feeders. There was also a great children's area beyond the rose garden. It was so cool!!! They had several small gardens for the kids to plant in with all of the tools they would need and compost bins for soil and a rain barrel to fill up their watering cans. They had an activity table set up with a craft, self serve lemonade on the porch along with chairs and books. It really was such a fun place to visit!!!!
