Sun River Gardens AMAZING!!!! I wanted to take home little pieces of their garden center and add them to ours. Of course the early morning snow was beautiful also.

Melissa, Every Bloomin' Thing, Susanville and I, enjoying the colors of Sundance Resort.

Favorite quote on the wall at Sundance. The entire room was filled with art and quotes. Took me quite a while to get through it all.

Sundance Resort
"Cactus & Tropicals", an absolutely amazing place. From the outside it looked like we were just pulling up to a plain greenhouse in the middle of a residential area, walk through the front door and you are standing in a tropical paradise. Very inspiring!

Hard to tell from this picture, but this is Cactus and Tropicals artistic director turning an old carousel horse into a "mushroom, bark, twigs, glitter and ???? " covered display piece for the holidays. Just beautiful!
