Weekend updates and crazy shop updates!

happy Monday!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

The highlight of my weekend was taking a quick trip to the Olbrich Botanical Garden in Madison Wisconsin. I really wanted to see the Blooming Butterfly show and it ends this weekend. Note to self-- Don't go a garden in the middle of the summer, in the middle of the afternoon. What a hot, sweaty day (and you know how much I like being in the afternoon sun!) But, I am glad that I went. I got to see the butterflies and checked out the awesomely beautiful Thai Temple.

Here are a few visual highlights from Saturday's Adventure...




I realize that there were a few sections of the Olbrich Garden that I missed (like the Herb Garden, the Perennial Garden, and the Meadow Garden)...looks like I have to go back when the weather is a little less hot and steamy!
