It was a beautiful, beautiful weekend. Just me, my littlest man and the dog while the Hubby and the older kids were away camping.
But I pulled a Cinderella and cleaned most of Sunday. It need to be done. And the incentive was that if I worked hard enough and made enough progress, we could nip out to a couple of these gardens in the afternoon.
What a treat.
I don't get to make it to many of these, but the two gardens we visited on Sunday have given me enough heart flutters to last a while yet.
Here's one of them:
Parking was a bit of an issue that worked out for the best because we got to park at the church and take the scenic route to the house.
I have been biking through this village for a while now, trying to have an inconspicuous nose, falling in love with it more and more so I appreciated the invitation to snoop around some more.
My little man enjoyed himself and was respectful of the plants and flowers even asking to speak to the gardeners.
He liked the paths leading to secret places and exploring.
Not to mention the cakes, the squash and the attention that he got for being the only child in the garden at that time.
After a week of defiance and tantrums, it was a peaceful weekend together, enjoying eachother's company.Quite a few of these shots were taken by him. I also gave him the phone to take pictures with.
He found "a secret spot!" Just a second later, he patted the space next to him, telling me to sit with him.I did and we pretended that no one knew we were there.
And I swooned.
From outside of the green house.
I love this. The colours almost looks like a retro filter to me.
The shot he took:
I wonder if I can sneak a few more visits in this weekend. It's also our local art weeks here. The snoop in me is getting a bit flustered by the thought all of these opportunities to explore!
