A Lovely Public Garden

I love going for a leisurely walk through a public garden. There is a lovely one nestled in the mountains about an hours drive from home that I try to visit at least once a year. It's always so relaxing to just walk through all the beautiful gardens with a friend or my mom.

Here are a bunch of pictures from my last trip I took with my mom last week:

A New Blog Design!

I've redesigned my gardening blog! It's fun to change things up once in awhile and do something different. Though I don't post here as often as my book blog, I do enjoy flowers and gardening very much. So when I get a chance, I love to share photos, tidbits and poems.

I really love the new design and blog button...hope you do too. :)

Flowers at Seattle's Public Market

Recently I visited Seattle and one of my favorite places was the Public Market. If I lived in Seattle I'd definitely shop down there a lot! Especially for the flowers!

Wow! I couldn't believe how beautiful and colorful the flowers were. And how inexpensive. I'd pay at least $30.00 for a bunch of flowers at home, that only cost $5.00 here at the Public Market! I was so temped to buy some but wasn't sure I'd get them over the border alive. :)

Here are a few pictures I took:

The Lamb

Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed,
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee.
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a Lamb.
He is meek, and He is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
