45 Places Your Friends Don't Know About-- Part 3

Again, these ideas were compiled by the good folks at Midwest Living Magazine in their August issue.


GARDENS

I'm a pushover for a really nice garden, be it public or at a house. I sure wish mine was better, and I think it would have reached its zenith this summer had I not gotten cellulitis in my right thumb and been unable to do anything with it. It is majorly OVERGROWN.


INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN-- Dunseith, North Dakota-- right on the Canadian border. Spectacular display in honor of the countries' friendship. www.peacegarden.com


MUNSINGERR AND CLEMENS GARDENS-- St. Cloud, Minnesota-- on bank of the Mississippi River. www.munsingerclemens.com


SMALL TOWNS


ARROW ROCK AND BLACkWATER-- Missouri--"Two-lane hishways wind and dip through woods and past farms to neighboring central Missouri towns" about 50 miles northwest of Columbia. Sounds like a real trip back into time. My wife's cousin and husband live in Arrow Rock and we must make arrangements to visit them sometime, the sooner the better.
