Preparation Day at the Botanical Gardens

The school kids love the sister missionaries 
 Sister Lometo
 Elder Sabin and Elder Ashcraft

 Elder Goddard and I know that the botanical gardens would be the last thing these young missionaries would choose to do on a p-day.  But, to be honest, there are not a lot of options for things to do here.  Sister Layton said it best when she said, "We can make anything fun," and they do!  We had a fun guide and even learned a few things.  Some of our favorites were the "blah, blah," tree named for the men listening to their wives. Blah, blah blah blah blah.  The elders had a good time with that one.   The cannon ball tree below which is covered in thorny vines and each flower only last one day and then falls to the ground like a cannon.  We smelled cinnamon tree leaves and nutmeg, jasmine, allspice and other smells I can't remember the name for now.  Mostly we just laughed and had a good time.

 I guess we can't go to a Botanical gardens without a few pictures of flowers.
