Grand Garden Views

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time." ~ John Lubbock

When Joe, Emma and I visited The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Ala., I was eager for Emma to join me to explore the pond in front of the hotel. Join us as we take a morning stroll.

This garden path was a popular route for pedestrians, bicyclers and ducks.

I'll share more garden moments tomorrow.

"Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year -- it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul." ~ Author Unknown
