Flowers at Crystal Bridges
The first thing I noticed when we got out of the car at the Crystal Bridges Museum were all the flowers. The museum itself is in a sort of gorge or valley - you park above it and walk down to it. All along the parking lot and the hillside around the building were lovely flower gardens.
I was very impressed at how vibrant and non-droopy everything was, considering how parched my own garden is by this time of year. The gardeners (and sprinkler system) there must be top-notch.
I can't remember what this purple flower is, and it was sort of hard to capture on camera because it was on long fluffy stalks and wouldn't sit still in the wind.
This pink flower is just a little out of place - its fellows were one bed over.
There were quite a few butterflies and bees enjoying the flowers too.
The flowers were a lovely introduction to the museum and preparation for the art inside.
