The past five days were filled with family, friends, food, music, laughter, visits to local brew pubs, and a walk through gardens of color. I’m still recovering from the food and brew pub portion, along with two nights sleeping on the sofa. I need a few extra days at the gym and a 10-hour nap.
In the last two weeks, I’ve been surrounded by the color of summer love with visits to West of the Lake Gardens in Manitowoc and the Green Bay Botanical Gardens. I’ve also witnessed the arrival of a gorgeous purple clematis on the patio. Since I don’t have the energy to plug together a well-written post, I thought I would share a few photos from the garden walks. Feel free to stroll at your own pace; stop and close your eyes to imagine the smell of rose and lily; gawk at the colors, the shapes, the beauty.
