Winter at Meadowlark Gardens

We went to Meadowlark Gardens yesterday to enjoy the spring-like weather. Despite the icy path, it didn’t stop us from walking our usual loop around the ground. The highlight of our stay was kicking snow into the frozen pond…kids found it sooo fun!

I love having Meadowlark as our go-to place. We don't usually visit in the winter because it's just too cold and not much to see, but I am glad to have these wintry shots. If you type in "meadowlark" in the search bar on upper left, you will find pictures of the place from other seasons. This set completes my own little collection. 

I am looking forward in returning in a couple weeks to see the pink cherry blossoms. And also, next time, I will have to make myself more presentable to be in front of the camera :)

  4. So this was an interesting outing, it's not too often one gets to wander around in the snow in 60 degree weather. Both kids managed to slip and land on their bums, but no tears were shed. Being our first time seeing the garden covered in snow and the ponds frozen over, it was a nice contrast to the stuff growing all over the place during the other seasons. It was just nice to be out for a change.
