No Photo Card! Plenty of Fun!

O.k. it was like this.

There was a beautiful cardinal just
begging to have his picture taken.
Handsome devil in a pine tree...
so cliche.
But beautiful.
I pulled out the camera...no card.

This is where I sighed a sigh of relief.
I would be enjoying the gardens without
thought of getting just the right photos.

So, I apologize, my freedom may be your loss...
unless Mrs. Rabe, (Creekside Cottage)
or Miss Paula, (Gathering of Friends) happen to post
pics that they took.

It was so much fun to walk through the gardens.
The day was so delightful.
There were about a billion butterflies sipping
nectar from the various sources at their disposal.

The picture above is the one taken at
Mrs. Rabe's home a few weeks ago.
So we really did not have to go to Kennett Square
for Beauty...but it sure was fun.

Longwood is not as colorful, for the most part, at
this time of the year. There was a lot of monochromatic
white and green beds. Very pretty.

One exception to the lack of color came in the huge
outdoor beds next to the concert shell. There were
purples, reds, oranges and yellows. We saw many
varieties that were new to us and uses for some
plants that we had not thought of before. I guess
that is one of the reasons you visit a garden such
as this.

The lily pads and large "platters" are absolutely amazing
right now. We spent a very long time just staring and asking
questions of one of the employees. Wow!!

Miss Paula, Mrs. Rabe and I made time for some heart to hearts
about various things in our lives. It is so very good to
have friends to share our hearts with.
I hope you have someone like that in your life.

Somehow, as you see the things that God has created you just
know that HE is able to provide for our every need. To glimpse
that little piece of HIM. To see HIM as Creator God, artist,
all powerful...amazing!

Please take a break from the busyness of your day today to spend
a bit of time with our Creator God. Wander through a garden or
search out photos of His Creation and look at the creativity and
attention to detail that our Heavenly Father used in speaking His
creation into being.

Blessings on this day!
