This afternoon, Carol, Jonathan, and I walked through Roger’s Gardens in Corona Del Mar, CA. It is a destination outdoor and floral garden shop filled with many varieties of unusual and beautiful flowers and trees.

Carol and I drove down to Manchester, CT, where we walked through the many different gardens of Wickham Park. It was a beautiful, relaxing time.
We saw the wild tulips of the Steppes region. Since I was more familiar with the organized, well laid out fields of the Skagit Valley in Washington, I was surprised to see tulips growing in the wild. There were red ones, smaller yellow ones, and then tiny white ones. I was even caught trying to take a picture. Beautiful.
Today we took a drive to Outlook Farm, a U-Pick apple orchard in Westhampton, MA. We didn’t pick any fruit, but we did go for a stroll in the orchard and enjoyed the flowers, pumpkins, and gourds around the store.
This morning, Carol and I drove north to Shelburne Falls, MA, to view the Bridge of Flowers. Admittedly, I expected a bridge you drove over that had a few flowers on it. Instead, it was a walking bridge covered with flowers. God’s beautiful palette of colors was on display reflecting his creativity and glory.
This morning, we journeyed to Northampton to visit the Botanic Garden of Smith College. This week is their annual Spring Bulb Show. Though it is still winter outside, God’s beautiful palette of colors is on display inside.
I spent my “think time” at Stanley Park in Westfield, MA. In addition to being a good place to sit and think, it was a feast for the eyes–rose garden, Asian garden, wildlife refuge, walking paths, soccer fields, tennis courts, children’s playground, duck pond, Koi fish, bridges, water wheel, and much more.
