Thanksgiving Point

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.

I'm in love with, The Proof of Your Love, an amazing song by For King & Country. Pin It

Such a pretty place! Your pix make me long for spring already... *sigh* ...imagine being able to skip winter all together and arrive in a garden filled with blossoms, with the warmth of the summer still ahead. (can you tell that I'm dreading winter? ;D)

How fun! I love the pics and am so glad you, Nic, and the kids enjoyed your time there. I wish I could be up there more often to spend more time with all of you.
