Como Zoo Minnesota

Como Zoo Address: 1225 Estabrook Drive, Saint Paul, MN 55103

Finally this week end there was some warm weather here in Minnesota. As there is not much greenery and no spring flowers, we went to Como Zoo to spend sometime outside. It was pretty nice weather(in upper 70s) after such a long winter. Here are some quick pictures which I clicked.

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum – Waiting for Spring

This week end finally there was some sun and temperature in lower 40s. So we went to see Arboretum if there is any spring flowers popping up. Visiting arboretum is always a nice experience. Still there was no flower or tulips but we got chance to see how Maple Syrup is collected from Maple trees, each maple tree was tapped and a bucket was hanging to trunk of the maple trees. Here are some pictures in mean time springs comes.
