Pictures from my visit: Part One
I had such a nice visit; I don't think I will be getting over it any time soon; Those moments with your grown children are so cherished especially when they are hard to come by... and the grandchildren... well, I will try not to be too emotional on my blog but what can I say... sniff, sniff. I decided to post my trip in three parts, so that I don't inundate you with too many pictures at once.
The Monet Pond
Marie and Elizabeth and their families have had a wonderful opportunity to buy a property with some land and 2 houses. It is like a little bit of Eden. On it, they have a "Monet" Pond.
At least, that's what I call it, because of the beautiful Water Lilies.
The day we took these pictures, it was overcast, and really such a beautiful day, because it was cool, and felt so nice...
but alas.. the Water Lily blooms were closed. I wish I had gotten them when they were open, because they were so beautiful.
But these were blooming, and aren't they beautiful?
It all reminds me of Monet Garden, and a Monet Pond.
I love the plants and flowers in Florida and North Carolina.
Too Cute for words
I had to randomly snap as many pictures as possible,
So as not to miss a thing.
I could eat them up.
The 3 musketeers are double cousins. Here's the story if you haven't read it yet.
They are almost like brothers. Many people often think the 2 on the right are brothers and even twins... but they are cousins. The two on the outside are the brothers.
And here is member of Elizabeth's family... this is a famous cat, his antics are known by many. I have never met a cat quite like him. His name is Bay.
Don't ya think?
Goats and More...
And then there are the goats...
Inspecting the Photographers equipment...
Notice Bay in the background.. determined not to be left out of the publicity.
Such a sweet smile.
"Hi I'm Stafford. I am Bay's brother...notice the family resemblance".
Stafford is the Chicken Guard. He chases all the Hawks away that desire a tasty chicken dinner.
He is very good at his job.
No chicken flock is complete with out a wonderful rooster. Love how he watches over his girls.
Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 this coming week. Have a great weekend everyone.
