Sunshine on a Rainy Day

It has gone from warm and sunny
to gray and cold here today.

So I need to remember my trip
to Longwood Gardens on Wednesday.

Hope you don't mind.

True story...

There have been some stressful
circumstances and events happening
here lately. So I found myself
with a tight and painful neck on

The kids wanted to go to the gardens
and I couldn't find any reason not to off we went.

Now, my neck was hurting so badly that
I was wishing I had taken some Tylenol
before I left.

But after I saw this....

and this.....

and all of this....

I realized that my neck felt
perfectly fine!

So....note to my family...
should I be difficult to find
sometime in the
days and weeks to come look in
the gardens... this one, or ours.
It's better than medicine.

The perennials are coming up in my
flower beds and it is time to get
some work done
out there.

I'll do it when the rain stops!

I am thankful we took the time to go this week, too! Glad it helped to relieve your tight neck...we are to have an onion snow in some areas today...such a contrast to Wednesday..but not unusual for this time of year...

Longwood always inspires me!

So happy that you found a way to relieve some stress. I just told Deanna, that SOMEDAY I'd like to travel to Longwood when we are back in PA to visit family, and it would be lovely to meet you both there.

I agree; it's so beautiful and restful that stress will be blown away.

Beautiful photographs of the flowers and grounds at Longwood Gardens. You sure make it difficult to put a trip to Longwood on the back burner!

Longwood Gardens is a place we never got to visit but always wanted to when we were living in York PA.
Beautiful flowers, nice shots!
