I love my family but sometimes a visit is just too long. My Mom was wonderful but my sister was such a complainer, demanding, self centered and just not a very nice person to be around. My nephew had a great time with Teddy and enjoyed all the places we went to. I am ready to get back on my schedule now and I'm even ready to go back to work! Yes back to work! I did have 2 phone calls from work on Wednesday-it is nice to be missed! On Wednesday we went to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and it was just gorgeous. Here are some pics from that visit.
This was the outside of the pergola as you began the self-guided tour through the botanical garden.
The walk through the Pergola in the beginning of the self guided tour was so beautiful. It was also nice and cool under there.
This was a bronze statue and a small fountain on the way to the White Garden.
These cone flowers were just beautiful waving in the slight breeze along the path.
This is my sister, Sue and my nephew, Troy. They aren't used to the heat down here so they stopped along the way to catch the mist coming off one of the fountains.
This was an odd plant growing there. I still don't know what it is. The botanical sign was missing. I thought it was kind of neat!
There were many varieties of hibiscus, but I loved this white one the best.
There was a lot of Rudebeckia growing. I think these are absolutely beautiful!
Here are some fountains at the gardens. There are a total of 13.
This was a bird aviary right before the topiary gardens. There were 2 pairs of parrots in there. My nephew tried to make them talk but they were silent that day.
These topiaries were at the end of the garden tour and my nephew was fascinated by them.
I will have more pictures for you another day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
