On the 23rd, Brian and I met my mom and brother over at Longwood Gardens. I bite the bullet and renewed my yearly pass. I say this as I was wondering if I could do the walking there after the past few months. Actually this is bazaar thinking on my part. I ‘need’ to go there for my gardening, flowers and photo fixes. My brother just bought a pass too! He will be bringing my mom out here now. That’s pretty neat.
Brian went along too. As we were walking in, a lady ‘waved’ a ticket in front of his face and said ‘do you want a ‘free’ ticket? Before I could say anything, he said ‘no’! He said he figured I will get a free pass for him via my membership, but still, you have to pay attention to what someone is offering. ;)
It was a nice display and mom said she liked it better than the flower show.
(Brian took a lot of photos too, I can’t remember which he did and I did, so we both will take credit for these).
This was so pretty to walk in to see from the blustery, but sunshiny day:
Yellow is one of my favorite flower colors.
I mean ‘wow’!
I’m a big fan of true blue flowers too! Who doesn’t love these Blue Poppies?
I think these are African Daisies or mums?
Did I mention I like Chartreuse too? Maybe this is a bit more lime color.
Warm colors are nice too.
I like this one for the demo effect-look at the gardeners’ hands. LOL
And what they were making:
Oh I could show you 80 more photos or more! I will be uploading them to Flickr. You will see them in my sidebar there.
A nice man took this on Brian, my mom and me.
Mom has been a bit worn out from her long walk and standing a lot, so I hope brother will push her around in a wheel chair sometimes. Can’t wait for them to see the rest of the gardens!
In the next few days, I’ll share with you our daytrip to Crystal Cave and Roadside America!
