    Nice, Jerry.

    How long did it take you to walk through the park? Is it a large park or does it just have a lot to see? You did a great job taking the pictures. Thanks for taking the time to share them with us.

    A part of a even larger group, we have a cranberry bog. It is the The Nature Conservancy one of the southernmost boreal bog east of the Mississippi River. These places are beautiful and special. I go every year to enjoy such rare and endangered native specimens.

    Good to know other areas are doing the same thing with this wild land. I would like to go visit your woodlands this Summer. Thanks for sharing Jerry and Joyce.

    The Garden in the Woods is certainly well named and is a beautiful place. Many thanks for taking us along with you and sharing it with us all.

    Very nice, Jerry.
    I would have liked to have walked there as well. I could have spent a very long time examining all the interesting plants.
    T'was a nice day out (for us too).

    According to the time stamp on the photographs we spent slightly less than 4 hours. It is interesting to take a path in one direction and next time go the other way. the perspective changes. some of the displays exhibit conservation techniques of other interests such as the raising of butterflies(they protect cocoons from birds)
