Peace Gardens

 We visited the Peace Gardens Saturday.
 These gardens are located on the border of The United States and Canada. They where created to promote peace and are full of beautiful flowers, fountains and walk ways.

 Here is a monument as you enter the Peace Gardens.
This is what is written on the native stone.
To God in all his glory.....
We two nations dedicate this garden and pledge ourselves
that as long as men shall live
we will not take up arms against one another.

Dawn met this little frog and was hoping with a kiss
he would turn into her prince charming.

Here is a picture of the gardens with the peace towers in the distance.
Behind them is a chapel with sayings carved in stones.

Here is a clock made of flowers.
It is different colors at differing times of the year
depending on what is in bloom at that time.

If you get a chance take a trip to the Peace Gardens.

Beautiful! I'm so glad you got a chance to go. Sorry about Dawn's Prince Charming. Hopefully she didn't get any warts from kissing that little guy...
