Dreamsicle Daisies and Sunflowers is the newest work in Flower Mound Studio, after a couple of whirlwind weeks of travel back and forth to Denver. I did have time while I was there to visit the Botanical Gardens, and here are a few of the photos from that trip below. Click on the video link below to see the tropical gardens that bloom indoors, all year round, and my favorite new flower, the hibiscus schizopetalus - it's pink and looks like a little wind chime!

My favorite place in the gardens...

 Even on a chilly day and after an early
snow, a flower was blooming!

I loved the copper sculpture!

 This flower was from the clematis family,
if I remember correctly....

The indoor tropical garden was amazing, plus it
had a bunch of cool poisonous frogs!
