Tuesday afternoon Morgan and I headed to Patricia's for a little walk in the woods. This is the time in northern Alabama to get into the woods if you're worried about little things like big snakes, that will soon enjoy the wamth of a woodland slither.
As you can see, sometimes the road has it's challenges.
And you never know who has decided to take up residence along the way.
Pat showed us very old, very large trees that had carvings made by relatives from long ago. We wished we could go back in time and see all the past events of her woods!
The outcroppings of boulders grew out of the woods like mini cities and were turned up and twisted in awe inspiring ways. They had trees growing out of them and these beautiful Resurrection Ferns.
Morgan is really enjoying the beauty of God's handiwork as she explores nature at it's finest.
I have to report that my camera battery had died in the woods and I didn't get all the sweet wildflowers that were growing. Luckily I did have a battery in the car so when we got back to the gardens I was ready to go.
The Iris are just beginning to open.
Whimsy is just the thing in every garden!
I still can't get over the vibrant color of Azaleas.
And then came Maddie! She is a pro at playing soccer with a basketball!
She and Morgan had a blast...
...and they wore each other out!
What a great time we all had!
Thanks Pat, we're looking forward to spending more time getting to know you and sharing our love of the garden!
