Not My Kids’ Legos

monarch

When the kids were growing up, I learned quickly that the bottoms of adult feet have some strange magnetic pull specific to stray Legos left on the floor. Especially in the middle of the night. I became quite familiar with that feeling of cut glass underfoot. Thanks to an afternoon trip to the Botanical Garden, it was quite refreshing to see Legos in a different light. A much different and amazing light.

 It took more than 60,000 Legos to create the above butterfly!

Can you imagine how tedious this would be? Geez Louise.

Even the fence was made from Legos — as was the seed in the feeder.

It was a quick trip to the Garden, but we managed a quick walk-through.

Love that there is still a small smattering of Chihuly left in the Garden from the exhibit a few years ago.

My absolute favorite thing today was the poppies. Loved, loved, loved the poppies…the buds, the blooms, the wilted ones. They were all perfect.

It was a great impromptu visit to the Garden and I truly appreciated that my son actually seemed to enjoy it.
