It was nice to just get away, walk around the gorgeous garden and chat with my hubby. Life has been so so busy lately that a break from it all, even if it was just for an hour or so was so nice. The last time I had visited this festival was with my parents and my grandmother on her last visit to see us before she passed away, so I always enjoy going to this garden and remembering her being there with us.
All of the irises and flowers are for sale, so you can walk around and pick which colors and sizes you like best and then purchase the bulbs or stems from the gift shop. Dan kept picking out flowers he liked and asking if they would keep until our house is finished. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure they won't last till November, but it just gives us a reason to come back next year!
I mean I obviously had to get a picture with the teddy bears!
Are there any flower festivals in your town? What's your favorite place to get your camera out and snap photos? I'm trying to think of ideas to do tonight and this weekend, so send any fun ideas my way! :)
