Olbrich gardens


recently good friends were in town for the weekend. The guys golfed 27 holes. Terry and I shopped and lunched and went to Olbrich Gardens. For some reason I had never walked the grounds. I think I have always been there in Winter and enjoyed the tropical plants in the conservatory. It was a nice day so we decided to walk some of the 16 acres of amazing plantings. The Thai Pavilion is worth the trip alone. If you live in Madison or nearby you really should do this before the snow falls.

And on the subject of snow my brother-in-law the meteorologist was just here. I always want to know what the next season will bring especially since this was such a strange weather year. Unfortunately he said colder and snowier than last year and it is going to start early. Now I wish I hadn't asked. I guess I am going to get snow tires for the Miata.
