Reiman Gardens’ current exhibit, Quilts and Barns for the Holidays, is a warm, natural display inside the toasty-warm conservatory. Stop by for tree-decorating ideas, poinsettias and other tropical holiday blooms, and the always-warm butterfly wing. I also love the gift shop — they have a great selection of garden- and Iowa-themed gifts, with affordable prices.
Reiman Gardens is located at 1407 University Bvd. in Ames. The holiday show runs through Jan. 10. Admission is $8 for adults, less for seniors and kids.
