On Sunday, the weather was perfect so Aaron and I set out to find a free/cheap activity, preferably outdoors. Since we are within a month of our wedding, we have a lot of payments due and not much money left for fun. We googled for parks and found the Olrich Botanical Gardens.
The gardens were beautiful and free to roam in, with lots of interesting plants and sweet fountains.
Olbrich is home to the only Thai temple in the U.S. It was made in Thailand and then constructed in Madison. Very pretty and relaxing place.
There is also an indoor tropical exhibit, which made me ready to go somewhere tropical. I love palm trees.
It was definitely a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Afterwards we crossed the street to a park and sat on a dock on Lake Monona. Nice, entertaining, and a total cost of $2 (suggested donation).
