Garden Beauties

We’re fortunate to have a show garden just minutes from home and with spring officially here, it is open to the public.  We got season’s passes and took the opportunity yesterday to enjoy a wander through the beautifully created scenery.

We were greeted by Spanish flavor entertainment.

It’s daffodil and tulip season, and the blooms gave a lovely show

There were a few other spring flowers to enjoy as well

What I enjoy the most is the artistry in using plants and flowers to create a picture or a shape – note the peacock proudly showing off his colors (in tulips at this time of year).

We’ll be going back often throughout the year to see how the peacock’s colors change.

 

Over the last few months, I’ve been woefully neglectful of blogger friends – now that my temporary job is over, I’ll be able to  respond to comments, and get back in touch.  Looking forward to spending more time with you all.
