Yesterday I got to feel, just a little, how Alice might have felt when I went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. I don't know what exactly I was expecting but it certainly exceeded every expectation I might have had. And of course in true Vanessa fashion I took lot's of pictures...
(one of my favorites)
water fountain in the Italian garden
you can see the statue at the very top
all the way down to the very bottom
the largest man-made water feature in the world
the large slab of concrete in the grass is a stage and they put on concerts here...how amazing would that be?
if you look closely you can see a Canadian goose who was hatching her babies
the view from behind the waterfall
when you first enter- this is the view of the entire garden
It's really too bad I never went to anything like this when I was a kid. I could have had a lot of adventures here.
