The past two weeks have been quite difficult.  I hope that my photos from a recent trip will transport you away….for just a moment or two.

In mid-October, I went to the New York Botanical Garden‘s show, Monet’s Garden. My garden had just a few flowers, so I was amazed at the amount of plants in full bloom outside the Conservatory.  Even some water lilies were still blooming in the courtyard pools. Of course, inside was overflowing with plants similar to the ones that Claude Monet  planted in his garden in Giverny, France.  I hope you enjoy these photos and take a moment to smile.

All my best to those who are still struggling.

I haven’t visited  Italy since 2007 and I miss it very much. However, this summer I have a little bit of Italy growing in my vegetable garden.  Chloe’, my daughter, brought me a large package of artichoke seeds from Italy the last time she was there.  I planted every seed and although only four artichoke plants sprouted, I really believe those plants know how happy I am to watch them grow every day.

By the way, Chloe’ gave me a surprise by writing about me in her blog, so don’t miss it!
