Outdoor Blogger Meet
An Outdoor Wednesday Post hosted
by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.
Thank You, Susan!!
I do hope you'll stop by her blog
and see more great links having to
with anything outdoors.
I post so many photos from Longwood
Gardens that I should be on staff.
Some fellow bloggers had commented
that they would love to visit the
Gardens but hadn't been there in years.
I talked to Mrs. Rabe and Kelly about
organizing a meet.
They were in favor...and so it began.
Sadly, when the time drew closer Kelly
was unable to join us but now she can
...in a virtual way.
Others of you were with us in spirit,
which might have been nice for you
given the weather.
This was the sight that welcomed us.
We were driving through the clouds...
with a mist that was constant.
We wondered briefly how we might
recognize each other but...
It turned out to be no problem
since I have posted recent pictures of
Chelsea and Warren on my blog.
JD, Jim and Karen found us.
Mrs. Rabe, Lindsay, Emily, Rachel
and Kyle soon joined us and we were off!
Jim and Karen with their cameras at the ready...
We talked and laughed our way
through all of this beauty...
The five bloggers present tried to pose
but it was so wet and we were so busy
getting to know each other that I don't
think we have one photo of all of us where
no one is talking.
Here you see
Mrs Rabe from Creekside Cottage.
My daughter Chelsea who writes Its About Friends.
I am in PINK.
JD from Ribbon Challenged.
Karen from Nittany Inspirations.
The guys complained at us just a bit
as they attempted to get a decent photo.
Not going to happen!
Mrs. Rabe had to leave first.
This made Chelsea sad since
the girls are all such
But the idea of lunch
cheered her up.
It was at lunch that
Karen and I discovered that she
knows my brother and his wife.
She was at their wedding.
It was delightful to meet these
We are beginning talks about
another "meet" next year.
Hope that works out!
Thanks for checking out the
fun we enjoyed.
