Right after the entrance, we were greeted by the arrow-wood. I have never seen it in bloom before, because I do not go to the Garden that early in the spring. Next year I will. The arrow-wood has the most wonderful fragrance.
My daughter and sister skated around. Madina (daughter) is still getting used to these after the child's model she used before (with wheels in two rows) and falls from time to time. But overall she is doing well. Has not hurt herself, and enjoyed the ride.
I spent several minutes with the violets, still covered in raindrops after the night rain...
...and then ran to catch up with the others.
Then I was delayed by this lovely tree. I am not even sure what it is. Looks a bit like cherry tree...
This... I do not know what this is, either. The white ones are lady's purse, and what about the blue ones? We have a lot of these in the cemetery, they always seem gloomy to me, but here in the meadow they appeared more cheerful.
We played frisbee, and then I took a break to take a couple of photos.
Madina's emotions are priceless! She is 8 years old now.
Katherine is always cool, calm and collected. With her Black Belt in Taekwondo, she has stunning muscles. She was awarded the belt just recently. Katherine is 14 now.
...And after play the family decided to have a rest on the grass.
I think Madina does look quite like her Papa, especially with this grumpy look.
Why buy a pillow when the Papa is there?
...And then it was time to go home. These several hours were very well spent, and we agreed to visit the Gardens again in a couple of weeks to see new flowers that will be there by then.
