Before I left home, a trip to AAA was in order to get books and maps of Iowa and Nebraska. On the cover of the book was an amazing picture of the most colorful rainbow like structure. I said I hoped I could discover what this was and get to see it. I searched the book and could find no description of the picture of what was on the cover. When I was talking with Beth, I described what I wanted to see and asked if she had any idea of what it was?!? Of course - why did I have any doubt that Beth would come through - she is such a wealth of information as well as a treasured friend. She said it was the Botanical garden in DesMoines and we would be going there since she had a meeting to attend there!! Ask and you shall receive - once again. It was small as botanical gardens go, but just right for an hour or two of meandering among the plants inside and out. I got to see the sculpture from every angle and yet another wish came true!! Life is good!!!
