Grandma and Papa visits are the best. Our whole family looks forward to them.
This last visit, we split up girls and boys for a “playdate”, as my daughter called it. While the boys headed off to a museum, us girls visited a local flower garden.
There were so many kinds of flowers.
Soft pink petals laced with white. Vivid orange petals curled up around a mop of deep brown stamen. Delicate royal blue petals coating long stems almost like rock candy.
We walked leisurely along the quiet paths, stopping to gaze at the fountains and charming bronze statues.
And of course, we stopped to look at the flowers.
The red and white one above is called a hybrid tea rose. Isn’t the striping gorgeous?
It was a wonderful day to be out gazing at flowers.
A beautiful time with one of our favorite people.
Wishing you a wonderful week,
