Minnesota Arboretum

Minneapolis has so many treasures to enjoy and the latest one we took in was the Minnesota Arboretum.

This was a double pleasure as we had the granddaughters with us, there was a butterfly exhibit and a local glass artist had his works on display in the gardens.  What more could a person want?

Emily and I both had our cameras with us to take in the sights and she is also a very willing model.

The tall spiky yellow "flowers" are created with glass

This was called the "poppies of Oz" and were my favorite exhibit

Kiersten took a turn with the red dress for this shot
Not to worry, Emily had two dresses with for the photo shoot

Long Live the Queen of the Arboretum


  1. Perhaps more so the Queen of Teen Photoshoots.

  2. beautiful young ladies and a beautiful place, too.

  3. Your granddaughters are beautiful. And what a lovely place for taking photos. The scenery is just awesome. I wish we had some place like this close by. I'll have to do some searching on the internet.
    Enjoy your wonderful family, and have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.

  4. This had to be a wonderfully fun photo shoot! The only thing missing is...cats! *wink*
