On a whim, I decided to go to Hendrie Park at the Royal Botanical Gardens. There is a nice tea house and I thought I'd get a few Postcrossing postcards written while enjoying the flowers
I've no idea how I managed this picture with so few people in the way
and not just young ones, either, as these ladies proved to be young at heart and spirit!
and, by far, the most popular tent was the one for face painting
the water lilies were in full bloom
and many dragonflies hovered around, but none stopped long enough to get a good photo
although these two gentlemen on the right patiently waited for hours (yes, they were still there when I returned from my tea break)
because this was my first stop
behind is a large deck backing onto the woods
and a boardwalk for walking deep into the valleyWishing Bridge
where you could write a wish on one of these colourful ribbons
"I wish to feel happy every day"
and it was at this point that the battery in my camera diedsee how far others managed to walk with their cameras at Restless Jo's
