Yesterday morning I headed out for a Perennial Fest hoping to capture some gorgeous images of their displays. But as I drove the clouds began to thicken and the possibility of rain was definitely on the horizon. I met with my gal pals and as we scurried through the displays the clouds continued to gather and become darker. I was definitely looking forward to the possibility of much needed rain, but because of the dark clouds the pics were not as light as I had envisioned. We barely made it through all the displays before the winds began to blow more intensely and the "feel" of rain coming was imminent. We ran for our cars just as the first BIG drops began falling and that was the end of the Perennial Fest outing. To compensate for our disappointment we headed for the nearest eating place and drowned our sorrows in some eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and pancakes. As we sat and stuffed our faces with food the rain continued on. We were truly hoping that it might be a passing shower and we could go back for more of a look-see, but NOT...it continued to rain (which we really needed) so I headed home. I may try and return later because I do so enjoy meandering through their lovely displays with water features, pathways, fencing and ofcourse the wonderful floral & plant arrangements.
Fairy gardening is BIG right now....I haven't even considered beginning this new trend. I have enough trouble keeping the regular garden alive. But I have to admit it is quite charming.
The clouds were really strange....it was like waves rolling in...
Later I drove to meet with my daughter and granddaughter to attend the Family Fun Night at my sweetie's residence. The staff always present such a lovely event when they plan these evenings to join the residence with their families. Hot dogs and hamburgers were served then we all gathered in the "town square" to enjoy some great blue grass music.
It was a busy day and a good day. We even danced a little....(we used to dance a lot and we loved having fun) I can still make him smile.
Have good days ahead.
Until next time.....
