Sweden at the Memphis Botanic Garden
Sweden is the country being honored in this year's Memphis in May celebration, and the Botanic Garden is highlighting "a smorgasbord of Swedish-style botanicals".
They also have an art exhibit of photos of Icehotel. Icehotel is fascinating. I think of ice as a fleeting phenomenon and remember with awe the only time I was able to stand on a frozen lake. To have a building and furnishings made from ice that lasts for months? Wow!
Did you know that Sweden is the most socially advanced country?
