A Walk...

... in our spring garden. Tomorrow we leave for Savannah and Charleston. Ellie has long nursed a hankering to explore the houses and gardens there, reputed to be of great beauty. Still, looking at these pictures of our own garden, I can't help but wonder why we need to go so far. Take a look...

























But anyway, this year... we're booked for Savannah and Charleston. As before, when we travel, The Buddha Diaries is liable to morph into a travel log. Bear with me.


For another beautiful spring garden, check in with Citizen of the World at A Little Off Kilter. Lovely pictures!

Your gardens are beautiful, Peter. Quite lush and lovely.

Hope you have a safe and fine journey to the southeast. Bon Voyage.

As an avid gardener myself, I find myself quite envious of your climate.

We had six inches of snow last night, and safe planting time won't come until May 15...

What gorgeous gardens!

Here in Oklahoma (where I'm currently residing) the pansies and daffodils are blooming, but what I wouldn't give to see some birds of paradise!

Safe travels!

Lovely gardens. They look quite magical, a true respite from the world as gardens were intended to be.

You will like Charleston, beautiful antebellum homes with blooms everywhere.

I've always wanted to visit Savannah so I'd love to see any pictures you post.

Have a wonderful and safe trip.

Oh, look at those Birds of Paradise! You must live somewhere quite south.

I've been to Charleston once and liked it quite a bit. But I've been to Savannah many times, and really love that city. Hope you have agreat trip there.

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes. We arrived! Looking forward to seeing something of Savannah when we begin to re-circulate. Will post pictures, Heart. And Nick, we did see the movie on the even of our departure. Poor movie. But nice shots of Savannah. Thanks for the compliments on our lively garden! (No one mentioned George. What is he, chopped liver?)
