Powell Gardens

Granny, Anita, and Sydney visited Powell Gardens today.  It’s a botanical garden just outside of Kansas City proper.  There’s lots of garden-y attractions for kids, its a great place for wedding pictures, and just a really neat kind of place.  The girls had a great time out there with Granny.

From the garden’s own website:  “Powell Gardens is a not-for-profit botanical garden located just east of Kansas City, Missouri. Our mission: to be an experience that embraces the Midwest’s spirit of place and inspires an appreciation for the importance of plants in our lives.

Set on 970 acres of lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows, Powell Gardens offers breathtaking display gardens, interesting architecture, a nature trail and a year-round calendar of special events and classes for the entire family.”

Sydney and one of the smaller forts. They were doing a whole Forts and Fairies thing while they were there.
Not exactly sure what it is but it kinda looks like a grain silo under construction. Good reference for when we have to build our silo for Lockridge Farms in Godwin’s Hollow.
Another fort… looks kinda castley to me…
