One is closer.....

There is a saying that says
"One is closer to God in a garden, then anywhere else on earth".

I have to agree....and so does Clare.

This week we visited the Sherman Library and Gardens
...not far from bitty Clare's home.

What a fun time we had.
I am pretty sure that Oma enjoyed it the most of all.

Oma provided the snacks to a very grateful Clare.

There were beautiful gardens and fountains everywhere.

A lovely stroll thru the flowers and roses was a big hit!!!

Clare enjoyed the turtle pond.....

...and equally loved the Koi pond too.

There is such joy in sharing a love of nature with such a bitty one.

They even have the most wonderful place for lunch!!!

I am pretty convinced that we have a new member of the family
that is going to love gardening.

I couldn't be more excited!!!

That looks like a beautiful place to visit and take a little one to see the joys of nature.
Yes, I think our little girls are the cutest ever and it's a good thing they are so pretty until that hair comes in. Emmy's is so white, what she has doesn't show up.
