Inside the house they had tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Plus lots of photographs, displays of historical artifacts (the Spy loved the arrow heads) and we got a bunch of nice pamphlets (on butterflies, hummingbirds, native Missouri landscaping and a tree ID guide) perfect for reading indoors on a much colder winter day (it was 55 today!)
Tiny frozen pond
About ponds in Missouri
I loved the look of these ferns
Lovely bronze color
So many different seed pods and spent blooms
Sea of grass
Little silver dried flowers
I spy my sister
Aunt Spy? She needs a Spy Garden name. haha
Baby and Smoochie
Little Yellow Seed
Some type of nightshade? Gooseberries? Ground cherries?
Always love a good deer fence! (since Spy Garden has its very own deer fence)
Reminds me of a Rothko painting
Spy Garden Family Shot
Weeee! (Baby and me)
Yellow and Blue
We can’t wait to go back!
