The Lauritzen Gardens

We decided to take a few days and shop and stay in Omaha to celebrate my birthday early. We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel - lovely - our friends Fred and Shelley met us there and we had a fun time exploring the Old Market and dining at the Twisted Fork. Friday we toured the Lauritzen Gardens (right before 50% of our party got too sick to carry on...)
We're replacing lots of the light fixtures in our home, so I have an obsession with them right now. Isn't this lovely? 

 The pointsettia and model train exhibit is up through mid January. I can't keep a pointsettia alive for more than 10 days. This exhibit has been up for two months and all the plants are gorgeous.
 bridges built of sticks...another of my current loves.
 Happy Birthday to me. (Tune in my head...)
 Happy New Year to my Friends and Family and All Of You!
Pretty treats for the birds were everywhere outside.

I do love the Lauritzen Gardens and I'm inspired every time I visit. Their entryway just makes me want to move in.

Happy Birthday, my dear friend! You are Ed's Birthday Twin (but I'll bet he has a few years on you!).
