Fun, Flowers and Fellowship

Good morning all, I hope your day is starting out on a positive note. Friday I met my two blogging buddies, Marlene and Pam, for a wonderful morning touring some lovely gardens.
Don't you just love the wrought iron bike by the front door filled with flowers~greeting everyone who comes near. I love the little table and chairs and the bowl of Impatients are delightful.

I love Peonies and hope to plant some next year. This table setting was so pretty-we all wanted to sit down and have lunch.
Waterfalls are my absolute favorites and hubby has promised me one here but unless we find a source for large boulders it may be awhile before we have one in our yard.

Pam looks adorable and ready for a picnic lunch.

Here we are, just finishing up the tour and ready for lunch. We had such a delightful time together, as we always do. There is nothing better than spending time with girlfriends. I wish I could just pop on over to your place because I know we'd have a wonderful visit.
Have a blessed week.

I do believe I am a tad better today. Bigs to you.

  16. Thanks for sharing your bloggers-day-out with us! What beautiful gardens you were able to explore!

    In response to your comment @ Life Lessons: I have to say I was a bit shocked that Precious was so terrified of the water. She loved it as a little pup, but obviously isn't comfortable in deep water now. You're absolutely right, "If we would but learn to turn our eyes upward and rest in His arms we would swim and not sink." God bless!

  17. We did have fun!!! Thanks for posting the pictures from our day.
