You may remember when I visited our Children's Garden and it was a little cold! (HERE) Make that super snowy. Well, things have turned a bit weatherwise (although I hesitate to say it -- it's still cold but warmer and the snow is gone -- today at least!) It was nice a couple weeks ago so I decided to return to the garden and go down the rabbit hole with Peter, and Alice's white rabbit and the Cheshire cat! (Cue the music -- "Cheshire Kitten.") And don't forget to dress for the occasion!
These bunnies are at the Peter Rabbit garden, which will eventually grow all things one might find appealing to Peter and his friends -- lettuce, carrots, spinach and much more!
We'll pass by the big, beautiful "Wonderful World." It's surrounded by a rainbow walkway -- a fine reminder that our wonderful world is indeed a rainbow of sights, sounds and most of all, people.
Step with me over Monet's Bridge. Modeled after the famed bridge in Giverny, it crosses a wee pond in which soon one will see the golden koi fish (and maybe a frog or two!).
I'm told to get the color just right, the designer discretely removed a small chip of paint from the real deal in Giverny long ago and had it matched!
Just beyond that we enter the world of...
...and the Alice in Wonderland Maze!
Children love dashing through the maze, only to find a dead end!
Along the way they are "greeted" by some of the characters from the story, like the white rabbit...
...and my favorite, the Cheshire Cat!
When all is done and if you find you way out the maze, a small, sweet courtyard awaits you!
I leave you with a few tags from a long-ago swap.
It was so long ago, most of you probably haven't seen them!
And now, without further ado, I must...
...because I'm late!
Have a wonderful week!
