Austin Botanical Garden

This week's "field trip" was to the Austin Botanical garden. It was so pretty! And big. It's a park that's right in the middle of the city, and the park is like 7 acres, and there's tons of stuff! The science center we went to last week, the garden, barton springs pool, etc. It's amazing how nice the garden looks, especially because they're in the middle of a drought, and before we came down they had like 49 days where it was over 100 deg. But that's also a big part of the garden, is to teach what kind of plants and flowers are water conservers, and there's a whole section that teaches about compost. Anyway, it was a fun activity, and Emmaline really liked the flowers and ponds.
