Way back in April, my sister, her kids and I went to one of our favorite places, Thanksgiving Point, to check out the flowers and let the kids run off a bit of energy.
I swear the flowers here get more amazing every time I visit. I keep hoping I'll have a year with a bit less travel so I can justify a season pass, and then visit every couple of weeks so I could see the changes to the gardens through the season.
The flowers on this tree were so soft and romantic.
The door to the Secret Garden, designed to look just like the one in one of my very favorite books.
The trip was successful. I got some photos, my sister and I had a chance to catch up, and the kids ran out some of their energy. Photos of them were not going to happen this trip - they were too busy exploring.
