A Trip to the Gardens


SHE'S ALL I NEED FOR MY BIRTHDAY!



PROBABLY BY NOW EVERYONE KNOWS HOW CRAZY I AM FOR FLOWERS AND GARDENS. I'VE ALWAYS LOVED TO GARDEN AND WONDERED IF SOMEDAY I WOULD HAVE MY OWN GREENHOUSE. HOWEVER, WITH LONGWOOD GARDENS ABOUT AN HOUR FROM OUR HOUSE, FORGET MY OWN, THIS PLACE IS SO THERAPEUTIC FOR THE MIND AND SENSES. EVEN THE BABE ENJOYS FREELY RUNNING AROUND. I HAD TO GET SEASON PASSES AND NOW THERE'S NO EXCUSE TO NOT GO! THERE'S ACRES AND ACRES OF EVERY PLANT AND THEN GREENHOUSES FULL OF MORE! I'LL BE POSTING SOME OF MY FLOWERS SHOTS ON MY OTHER PHOTO BLOG. BUT HERE'S SOME CUTE PHOTOS OF KIRA HAVING FUN. AFTER A WEEK OF RAIN, IT WAS GREAT TO GET OUT!


DETERMINED TO GET THAT DRINK OF WATER (EVEN THOUGH I HAD IT WITH ME)

HEY PARENTAL UNITS!  I'M COMING, I'M COMING.


SWEET BABY GIRL.

OH THIS PLACE IS NICE.  OKAY YOU CAN TAKE A PIC OF ME HERE:))

Ivy,

thanks for the sweet comment on my blog!

I have been lurking on your blog as well and watching your pictures on Flickr - your Keira is adorable and your pictures are looking great.

I went to the Michigan workshop (I live in MI). It was great, but a little overwhelming. I feel like I'm kind of bumbling around in Lightroom, but I'm learning.

I look forward to watching Keira grow!

Hi Ivy-

Your daughter is a darling angel. You are so blessed! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think I've visited you before but (bad blogger!) didn't leave a comment. Your blog is beautiful- pictures, writing and all. Glad to have met you through that sweet Miss Natalie!

What beautiful gardens. I'd never want to leave.

Hugs,
Jennifer
