To save those little green guys. Thank you for letting me put you on the spot there. In good humor right so could be a wet weekend but it's going to be a dry Wednesday. I think Wednesday we we got good weather Wednesday looks like it's gonna be drying out after. Kind of a soggy Monday and Tuesday. What are we gonna see as we first go wander the grounds like you've Europe's first timer where would you suggest it is a couple and not miss exhibit's. We definitely have to go inside the botanical gardens it's open and free day during surname incurred an end like is said the two new exhibit are amazing. Our core cluster staff just angry Chad's updating exhibit we've been doing some painting in moving around in just updating refreshing. Our luck it is so neat how I remember back to the first starry night and the dome what's it called the dome when you walked in the meantime a condom the palm dome. And that was kind in disrepair. And that was one of the first things you guys did you know you walk in there and you feel like you're walking into his Smithsonian. A museum it is so cool to see our money at work there. Absolutely and that's exactly what starring Amy Erin does it raises funds for the botanical gardens and we put every dollar back into that beautiful glass conservatory for our entire community. Now how about for those who have been there maybe go one or two times a year on their own besides starry night but this may be their first time this year where some little other little nooks and crannies that. Maybe you guys who were there all know about but people don't take advantage of all the signs all the time. I would say definitely air water features are one of those hidden jams every. We encourage people to just stop. Taking deep breath and enjoy all of the greenery around you because life is so crazy and so hectic that going to a place like the botanical gardens can really think bring you back to center.
