Minnesota Visit

Hello.  I don't know where the time is going, but it seems to be flying by at a fast pace.  I've been going to sit down and write a new post for at least a week.

We did get to my sister's house the weekend before last.  We had a great visit, spent lots of time enjoying their pool.  It was a lovely relaxing get away, just what we needed. 

We did go to visit some beautiful gardens in St. Cloud on Saturday morning.  They are the Clemson Gardens I believe.  The flowers were beautiful.  There were many beautiful fountains as well. 

Mike had a great time taking some pictures.  The gardens end up alongside the Mississippi river, with several benches and garden swings for sitting and enjoying the views.
Pink flowers are among my favorites.  These pretty petunias lined some of the walkways.
Another pretty fountain.  I didn't count how many there were...

One of the gardens was all white flowers.  They were so pretty amidst the green bushes.  But I think the hydrangeas were my favorite.  They had white, blues and pinks.

I promise to post again soon with news about stitching.  But I wanted to take the time to share these beautiful garden photos first.

Happy Stitching!


  1. You're right, a very beautiful garden! I'm so glad you had a good visit with your sister! It's good to get away sometimes.

  2. Beautiful garden! I'm glad you had a good visit. I have always wanted to go to Minnesota--it sounds so picturesque.

    I love your blog header photo. I just dug out mine that I started years ago. I really need to finish it--it's such a pretty design.
