One of the best places to see the beauty of the changing seasons in Omaha is Lauritzen Gardens.
Our most recent visit was over Labor Day Weekend. It was a busy place, since a donor ensured free admission to the gardens that weekend. It was my niece Sophie’s first visit, and Mooch would not let that child out of her sight.
It was fun to compare that September visit to our May visit from this year. No place showed the most change than the Children’s Garden.
In May, it was just getting started for the season, so no corn maze, no sunflowers, not much really.
Then September came and boom. Look at this place!
Farley loved the sunflowers in particular.
I think most adults will enjoy visiting regardless of season, but if you’re bringing kids, timing is big.
The Model Train Garden is a favorite and it’s only open May through October. Keep that in mind!
I didn’t find much difference in that particular garden between our May and October visit (other than not all seven trains were operating).
While we were there, I saw a sign for an upcoming exhibit I know both kids are going to love: “Nature Connects 2: Art with LEGO® Bricks,” which will run Jan. 17 through April 26, 2015. We visited Nature Connects the first time it was here and the kids (and I) loved it. The indoor exhibit will feature 12 new displays!
Here’s a video from the first “Nature Connects” exhibit at Lauritzen Gardens, back in early 2013.

On an unrelated topic: I’m trying out BodySculpt treatment by Venus Swan at Body Brite Omaha tonight. I’m pretty psyche not only for the claims that it helps slow the aging process, but because I hear it’s really relaxing.
Your turn: Have you tried a BodySculpt treatment? What did you think of it? How awesome were your results?
