Arkansas Part 1
This is a little departure from my garden in West Texas. This week I was attending a conference in Little Rock and was amazed how beautiful this place was. So lush and green... and there were bodies of water nearby! So different from home. I don't know why people knock this place. It's beautiful and the downtown area we were staying at had a river path surrounded by sculptures and gardens. During a break in the meeting I got to pop down and tour this amazing garden by the river.
I loved the dancing rabbits sculpture. They reminded me of the wild jackrabbits running around town.
Now this is a blue bird you wouldn't want to tangle with in the garden!
This deer looked right at home among the grasses.
The startling blue of this scultpure called one over to have a closer look.
Little Rock seemed to have a lot going on with the arts and cultural events. Who knew?
