This challenge asks us to look back over the year for some of our best photos and what they meant to us, so here goes! They also reveal the things I like to do best!
In Feb, I sent a Valentine to my hubby!
In the Spring, we worked on a new pathway and terrace in our Woodland Garden……….we could never get grass to grow there right……….it was straggly at best, but no more!
My rhododendrons bloomed profusely for the first time in several years! I’m not sure why though! We’ll see if they bloom again this year!
An unknown, unplanted plant showed up in my Cottage Garden and it was striking! I hope it comes again!
On one of our summer forays we headed to Nashville, TN, to admire the Cheekwood Gardens and one of the many glass sculpture displays by Chihuly.
Another one up close and personal!
We also went to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC to see an exhibit of props (Entire room settings) that were used for the Downton Abbey TV show. My favorite was the kitchen!
We traveled to Roswell, Georgia………shopping, and touring old plantations and the Old Mill Park…………
While in Nashville, TN at the Green Hills Mall, I observed this man get ready to eat his brought-from-home lunch! He had his music, his fan, two bottles of drinks AND a giant bottle of Mayo! I ask for permission when wanting a photo this intimate, however the man was so engrossed in his meal, I was afraid to disturb him! I decided on one fast click and if the photo was good or bad, so be it!
In October, we went to the Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia and toured the cemetery at night, when some of the dead, are re-enacted and come back to life to tell their tales! It was SUPERB! It is the BEST cemetery ever, for history, garden plantings, architecture, cemetery design and overall beauty. The volunteers work long and hard to make this cemetery one of the best in the country! Who would have thought that a cemetery would have sooooooo much to offer?
In the Fall, the Soup Recipes were ratcheted up…….let all the cooking and baking begin!
Christmas at home, every year!
And now, we are ready for a NEW YEAR of Adventures! WE have a lot planned, so fingers crossed, we will be doing international travel again! I certainly hope so! Cady
