an Iowa vacation

Plantoir Sculpture

 I was so excited to see this- a giant garden trowel sculpture, located on the grounds of the Meredith Corp. offices. Of the many magazines they publish, Country Gardens is my favorite and I was leafing through a previous issue- and there it was! You can read all about it here.

Off to the Prairie Pedlar at Odebolt, which was also featured in Country Gardens magazine many years ago. I'll share some photos from here later.

Living History Farms-  "Living History Farms is an interactive outdoor museum which educates, entertains and connects people of all ages to Midwestern rural life experiences." I don't have any photos from here, but if you enjoy American history, you'll have so much fun!

Historic Valley Junction in West Des Moines 
is home to some great bead shops.

 Vacation should also include some relaxing and a bit of needlework...

And last but not least, lots of visiting and catching up!
Love you both!

How are spending your summer vacation?
