hello, hello! although the sun is shining today, it's been so cold and rainy, lately. did we skip spring & summer? i just hope these blooms from the new york botanical garden aren't the last we see this year ;). enjoy your day!

xo, cindy

lilacs and something else. i don't always stop to read the plant names, but might have to change that in the future.

Auricula Theater
this display for the incredible auriculas was designed by the dowager marchioness of salisbury (lady salisbury) of hatfield house fame. for some reason, i'm suddenly reminded of lady campanula tottington from the wonderful animated movie the curse of the were-rabbit.

White Tulips
white tulips in two places.

Children's Garden
the children's adventure garden is so cute and great for big kids, too. there are always group meetings from concerned parents when kids get in here - no running, no knocking people down, no yelling - oy!

Orange Tulips
ok, babies are cute even from the backside, so are orange tulips from any side.

Such lovely, dreamy pics of my favorite! It makes me wish we were in a better environment, because although it's been in the 90's, the consistent 50 mph winds have pretty much removed any sign of colorful petals.

Dowager marchioness of salisbury! I want a title like that.

Actually, her display really wowed me. Looks like a whimsical stage recital by the class of auriculas.

Beautiful gardens. Our friends were married there many years ago. It's nice to revisit through your photos.

Cindy your photos are just want I needed this morning- simply beautiful! I love the quote too.
I think the sun is trying his hardest to shine this morining. We have had so much rain thunders all week that streets have flooded and water finally made its way to the basement. G was gone this week on business trip so I had to call a friend at 6am yesterday.
Many hugs and thank you for the ray of sunshine you start my days off with! Enjoy your golden weekend Cindy!! xo
