Photo(s) of the Day: Beauty at Powell Gardens

We like to go to Powell Gardens, just east of Kansas City, about once a year. They have the most beautiful seasonal gardens around.

Check out last year’s photos, too.

Happy baby. “I like to smile because you get all excited when I do it!”

Photo of the Day: Waterfall Garden

If you took a guess at yesterday’s photo, the correct answer is the Chapel at Powell Gardens just outside of Kansas City. Powell Gardens is home to this chapel, several types of flower gardens, fountains and water gardens, vegetable gardens, trails, and so much more. It’s such a beautiful place to visit that I’ve got about a week’s worth of photos to show you!
