Out and About
Kauffman Gardens, near the Plaza in Kansas City, is a little-known gem. It is lovely in spring and summer, but even in autumn the gardens are blooming. I was there last week, and the chrysanthemums put on quite a show. There were a few dahlias still hanging around, but mostly there were chrysanthemums. I am partial to chrysanthemums because I was married in November, and my wedding featured a lot of gold and yellow chrysanthemums.
This past weekend, my husband and I took some time to stay at Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska. While we were there, we drove into Omaha. We saw the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens, then stopped by the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge at a National Park Service site. We didn’t walk the bridge, but we admired it and the view of the Missouri River. A peaceful setting on a beautiful early autumn day. How are you welcoming autumn days?
