Photo Blog: Thanksgiving Point, Utah

This past weekend I was able to visit the Botanical Gardens at Thanksgiving Point. I was thoroughly impressed with the beautiful surroundings. As soon as you exit the ticketing area and onto the path that leads to the main gardens, the sound of rushing water enters the ear canal. For me, that is always a comforting sound. Some of the flowers were in bloom. I can imagine what it will be like in a few weeks when nearly all of the tulips are in full bloom and all the other flowers also.

I hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures. I took them with my camera phone. I'm amazed at how good the pictures come out. I should have taken my "real" camera with me but I didn't think we'd be able to leisurely stroll around the grounds. Absolutely gorgeous!

Water rushing over pebbles and stones and river rock is not only beautiful but the sound... priceless!
Waterfalls are so beautiful! The way it erodes away the rock and makes it smooth is such an amazing feat. Sea Glass starts out as a regular piece of glass that is dropped into the ocean and is worn away by the ocean, the tides, and the abrasive sand. God's world is so perfect!

Your camera phone is amazing! Better quality than my 'real' one, haha. Beautiful shots. I especially loved seeing the daffodils. =)

My extended family visited here last year... about May... and when everything is in full bloom it's AMAZING!

But seeing it now is AMAZING too. I love how everything is on the verge of bursting with life :D
