The Pleasure of Family
Vincent and Toni took me to visit Reynolda Gardens here in Winston Salem today. I have never been though it is only a few miles from home. I had a wonderful time and am anxious to go again. I haven't relaxed and enjoyed an outing like that in forever...really.
Before we entered the gardens Sophia spotted a one eared cat to befriend. This, of course, overshadowed all other sights and sounds of family and garden. How sweet and gentle she was with the "kitty". I don't think she even noticed the cat's missing appendage.
I was surprised to see the number of plants still in bloom. We have been having nights in the low 30's and have had some frost. I thought all the blooms would be long gone...especially the roses. But, as you can see, I was wrong. Imagine THAT!
