2011 Holiday to the Holy Land


During the 2011 Holiday to the Holy Land, which has been the focus of many entries here in "The World This Week" I have included pictures of some of the high points.  On June 30th we visited the Des Moines Botanical Gardens.

In addition to the sights below, Our Host and I walked the People Bridge near the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.  We also visited the Robert D. Ray Japanese Gardens.

 This delightful, colorful sculpture greeted us on our arrival at the Des Moines Botanical Gardens.

 The Staff was busy preparing a new display during our visit.  They were most friendly and answered our questions while they worked.

Of course the flowers on display were most interesting.  I could not let this photo opportunity pass me by.

A delightful place to visit.
