Life is amazing, on the Fourth of July I kicked my age up a notch to 55 years of life on my favorite planet… Earth. My wonderful husband Rick asked me what I wanted to do for my Birthday. I chose a location that I had been sort of avoiding the past two years. Now I wish I had visited sooner. Garvan Woodland Gardens is unlike any other botanical garden I have visited… In a really good way.
It is nestled in the Forest on the edge of Lake Hamilton. They did not clear cut the forest to put in a garden. They created trails through the Forest and added gardens among the Trees. It is a delightful mix of groomed and wild terrain. So much more to explore and I cannot wait to return!!!! The purple trail is calling out my name :o)
Note to the Peacocks: I am flattered you were interested in my photography skills and took the time to observe me photographing the American Bullfrogs. Later however you stalked my husband and me to the parking lot as we returned to my van. The sexy rumbling noises and rubbing your tail along my legs seemed wholly inappropriate for a first date. :)
==>> Dearest readers if you recognize any of the unidentified plants I photographed I would greatly appreciate a comment on the photograph to let me know the name. <<==
Love to ALL!
