What Katie Did (Rosie & Momma too)!

On Katie's Birthday this Week...

we indulged in a delicious frugal luxury of coffee from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

(Katie's very favorite)...

then... we then snuck away...

... to visit this charming, Cottage, nursery.

We entered here...

Rosie framed herself under the roses & rustic arbor!

Katie found a quiet corner ... a perfect place to meditate & pray...

Ooops...I think she had to take that call!!

The girls spotted a lucky Calico kitty patrolling the premises.

We pray that's not why this charming bird cage is empty.

The girls meandered down a pathway strewn with flowers & herbs.

We don't know what these flowers are called...but we think they're really pretty!!

We appreciated this lovely iron trellis... lion fountain... and concrete urn.

Then we wandered out of the enchanted nursery until...

another excursion!


Thank you for joining us in Katie's birthday adventure!!

I am not sure what the flower is either. It looks similar to thistle which is really a weed, but the leaves look significantly different. I'm going to see if I can find it in my plant books!
