Spring flowers and lewis ginter gardens

Miranda , Adalyn and I took in the beauty at Ginter last week.  First lunch in the Cafe , I really like the shrimp salad with dill.   The red pepper lobster bisque is good also ,  everything as always is fresh and so good.
minestrone

These are so festive and are as good as they look
I like the plantings of daffodils and violets together
I read that if I plant daffodils around tulips , the tulips are protected from being eaten by whatever eats them,  I think voles, not sure.  Anyway the daffodils I understand are not tasty and that the other bulbs will be left alone.
fragrant and beautiful



Trellis in front of Lewis Ginter home
she feels the metal chair  and thinking about it.    I took this with a different setting and think it was set on the
"forest setting"
Mom just finished feeding her lunch,  very serious look on her face,  she knows she has something in her hand.  She feels the bench.    They take in so much - remarkable
I like how the shadows of the tree limbs reflect in the pavement
blossoms overhead

Addy would love to grab the colorful blossoms
she eventually will I am sure.

very nice benches made for the gardens,  also sold in the gift shop

we enjoyed the lillies here

I am looking forward to azaleas to bloom.
