Good Morning and happy Friday my friends.
I'm playing over at Kim's cafe today-care to join me to see other fun finds?
Before school let out I started making a list of day trips I wanted to do sprinkled throughout the summer. I crossed Descanso Gardens off that list yesterday!
Just a short 20 minute drive out to Pasadena & you are in another world.
There were pops of color and contrast everywhere.
Then I ran across these sunny side up "fried egg" flowers!
I showed up late in the season for all the pretty blooms...
But there's a lilac garden...A LILAC GARDEN-400 plants & 250 types of lilacs!
I'll have to be sure and mark my calendar for next March.
I found amazing places all over the garden to just sit, reflect, breath and take in the views.
My next field trip is Monday...
...a little cruise out to Catalina & then on down to Mexico. I'll be posting pics on IG (@kellykardos) if you want to ride along!
This Alzheimer's stinks. Getting sucked into your world is scary for me I can't imagine what it's like for you. Now, I'll admit, our conversation last night started out amusing...but when you told me you were worried I was going to be kidnapped when I come to visit you & that you'll be in the trees working to protect me with your M-14, well...things sort of went down hill from there. I learned a new phrase last night-Sundowners syndrome. I don't think I'm going to call you in the evenings anymore.
Dear summer vacation,
I love you.
I decided it was time to pick up the book we started to read together. It's been over a year-actually it's been that long since I've picked up any book to read. I had to start it again so I traded the bookmark for one that you made me. I sat in the same cozy couch corner so you'll know where to find me if you care to look over my shoulder while I read. The late afternoon sun blazes through the window and bathes me in warmth and it feels good.
I could not have asked for a better sister-in-law.
You are a hoot and are down right hilarious.
Thanks for visiting today!
Happy (summer) snapping
