Thursday we had a beautiful morning with beautiful friends at a beautiful Garden...it was a beautiful day! We went to Red Butte Garden with Jack and Marilyn and then out to a fantastic lunch at Niche. The Garden is a non-profit botanical and ecological center provided by the University of Utah located in the foothills of the Wasatch Range.

The setting is lovely and the gardens and natural areas are very carefully planned and maintained. Everywhere you look, inside buildings and outside, details are perfectly orchestrated with an artists eye.
The only area that offends the eye is the construction zone, where earth movers lumber along, and worker's are crawling around the area that will soon be a three acre garden designed to test, display and interpret water-wise landscaping principles. It too, will become part of the wonderful landscape.
Enjoy some pictures from our exploration of the Red Butte Garden...

Friday morning Dave and Jack played golf again and later in the day Dave and I drove down to Provo to pick up our finished 2016 Jeep Wrangler. More on that next time.
