Hours daily 9 to 4
Way back when hubby and I were just dating, (yes-before marriage), and when he was trying to win me over (he he), he asked me where I would like to go. Without hesitating, I answered, Hidden Lake Gardens. Now this is not his kind of thing. He likes nature, but only between the holes on a golf course. The other day when we out for my birthday dinner, I wanted to stop to snap a picture of a tree in a bloom, he drove faster and commented that a tree is only wood, leaves and bark and if you've seen one, you've seen them all!! Then he made this kind of funny sound to let me know how exasperating I could be so I should back off.
I waited over ten years but we went!
I gave up on getting to go. It had been over a decade and I stopped asking, but last summer he called me one day after I got out of church. He told me to hurry home. He told me once I got home to get in his car; then he drove and drove and drove. We arrived at Hidden Lake Gardens; much to my surprise. Last summer I posted some photos I took during our little day trip. It was a day when he pointed out things I might like to photograph, such as a swan and even stood patiently while I shot photos - not too many as I did not want to spoil a magical day. We spent about half an hour that I will forever treasure. (I could have stayed all day)
Thanks for the photo loans
Rather than look through my photo archives, I borrowed photos from the web, links attached. Thank you for the loan.
I have been neglecting my blog and my blogging friends and for this I apologize. My job has increased our hours and it is not voluntary. :-) My family and responsibilities have grown....Last week by the time I was able to even sit down at my computer it was midnight and I was falling asleep in my chair, so simply exhausted I got up and went to bed. I had worked 10 1/2 hours and then babysat till Mari got home from school. Abriele is utterly fascinated by the cords on my lap top, the light on the mouse, the screen, keys, you name it so around her blogging is very difficult.
(Bet you were wondering when I would get back to the point!)
1. What is the place you have visited and enjoyed the most?
2. Where would you like to visit if you could visit anywhere? I want to see so many states but if I chose one it would be North Carolina. I wrote to the chamber of commerce there as a child and the brochures they sent me took my breath away.
