are you aware of the beauty right here in our own nwa backyard?  take a trip to the botanical gardens of the ozarks and you will see lily pads, japanese gardens, native trees and plants, sculptures, an impressive vegetable garden, chickens and butterflies.  the plants are well labeled and the paths are plentiful.  the children’s garden is like a cross between a fort and well kept secret.  you are guaranteed to see something new every time you visit.
