The Garden Center

There is a very inspirational garden center in nearby Tomball, Texas. They offer classes on a variety of topics. A few weeks ago they had a class on garden photography so I headed over. I'm really a point and shoot kind of gal and don't understand half the functions my camera is capable of. But I believe it is hard to take a bad picture at The Arbor Gate. They have beautiful vignettes all throughout the property. You just go there and dream your own garden could look like that.
Here are few pictures I took that day.





It is a very peaceful place out in the country. There is a pasture next door with horses grazing and galloping around. I could just live there I believe.

That looks beautiful, a little far away for me to visit. Looks like a place I would like to live. Take pictures and paint.

I love places like that!
I too am a point and shoot kind of girl! But your "point and shoots" look better than mine, must be the camera quality! hehe

Love that swing photo! Looks like it could be in a magazine!

Thanks for praying for my cousin Debi and her son Shane. Just got word he is doing much better and is now back in the clinic at Camp Le June.

I love the photo of the swing like that...I could write a novel from just looking at that...in fact...I think one is writing in my head right now...

I love gardens! My dad was always into making our house so beautiful. Hubs could just take or leave our landscaping. But not me. I get more enjoyment out of plants and flowers than I even do a good massage or hair cut. We just went to a nursery and that was a little painful for both of us. I am SO picky!! He is not so much. But my dream is to afford a landscape architect someday woo hoo and let them go to town on our house!
