Hi there Bloggy Buddies! Once again, it has been too long.. but alas, I am back again.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of touring a beautiful garden with a local garden club. This lovely paradise, with so many painstakingly gorgeous details, happens to belong to my BFF’s sister Beverly and her husband Wayne. They have both worked diligently on this project, for years.. perhaps. I will share (way too many) pictures I took from that morning. It is the most peaceful and serene garden I have ever been in. Can you feel it? Also, pieces of their families’ history are intertwined into the space. I just love Rusty Stuff when it is used so creatively!
I will close with a little story. Beverly and Wayne live next to Bev’s old “homeplace.” One time when I was staying overnight at their house, Carol (my BFF) suggested we (including her two sisters) trek out across the “wilderness” to her grandparents’ place. We did, and eventually got there. However we got lost on the way back home. I would say Carol and I were about 10 or 11 at the time and we were the older chicks in the group. It was traumatic.. but exciting! I would say it was only an hour or less we were “out there” finding our way, but it seemed like forever to four lost girls. We all had on boots which became very caked with mud while walking through the pastures. By the time we finally got back to their house, the boots were so heavy we could hardly walk. And Carol’s Mom was livid! “You girls could have been killed by the mean bull in the pasture!” said She. It is a great memory to me though, and I will remember it always <3 You see, at that time, I was still a young innocent small town girl who thought country life was the bestest thing ever!
Thanks for coming along on the tour. See you soon, I hope!
