Sam at the entrance to The Maze and some beautiful spiderwebs with morning dew. There were gorgeous spiderwebs all over the gardens.
At 10:30 every morning there is a live ladybug release in the Rose Garden. They release 1000 ladybugs every day and the ladybugs eat the aphids on the roses. Above is Dave with his hands full of ladybugs.
Dave and I with our handfuls of ladybugs and Rachel with her single ladybug which she released onto the ground! Ha!
Above is The Children's Fantasy Garden. Sam got here and refused to go any further. It was a magical place to play and dream and laugh. I especially loved the teapot planters in the above right photo. Sam liked the rabbits, and I also liked the living roof and the flower bed!
Since Sam refused to leave the children's garden, Dave offered to stay there with Sam and Rachel while I went exploring on my own. (Supposedly while I was gone Sam went from house to house doing errands "at Shoppers, the library and Zehrs" where "banana, bread and flowers" were on the list to buy. It's actually quite a realistic list!)
When I discovered this sign, I was thrilled and enchanted. (It's not on the garden map and I'm not telling you where I found it so if you ever go to Kingsbrae Garden you will have to do some searching.)
Can you see the enchantment on my face?!?! It was a beautiful, mystical discovery and I'm still excited about it :)
The Heath and Heather Garden and some awesome pot statues. Loved them! Then we all four made our way over to the Sculpture Garden. I wasn't sure what to expect but I really really liked about half the sculptures.
(ps. Because it was so foggy and misty I felt like I was wandering around an English garden and it also whetted my appetite to go and live in England. We'll see how soon THAT wish comes true! Ha!)
