The gardens are located in the campus of Clemson University. When the boys were 5 and 3, I was taking classes at CU and three days a week the boys and I would have a picnic lunch at the red caboose at the gardens. That was over twenty-five years ago! I can still hear their laughter in my mind.
Even the swings have a story. One summer when my nineteen year old son was enrolled in classes at Clemson, he broke bones in his foot hiking. He had a cast on his foot and leg so I drove him to class, took my book to the swings and read until he was out before driving him home, everyday! I wish I could go back to that time, too:-)
But this is early March of 2014 and my mantra is "Treasure Today!"
A part of the garden DH and I visited today was the camilia garden, all in bloom!
Actually, the camilia garden is a series of paths around the pond.
Beautiful camilias are blooming!
What a beautiful day for turtles! I wonder what the turtles were thinking?
Thank you for taking a break with us today!
