Not only is it the city of my birth, it is now home to my daughter and her husband. Our family helped them move this weekend from Moorhead, MN.
It is a beautiful city surrounded by lakes. I am looking forward to many gardening and birding opportunities during future visits.
If you live in the area, tell us about the gardening or birding adventures around Madison that you enjoy. I’d imagine there is a lot to see.
If you live nearby or are planning a visit, check out these attractions:
Olbrich Botanical Gardens is an adventure for all ages. Explore the rainforest year-round, stroll the flower gardens and browse the gift shop.
