(will share photos later) which we had success in finding. We stopped at a few more places, went out for a leisurely lunch, then meandered home along scenic country roads before parting ways again.
I took some time to enjoy the weather and to wander in the gardens to check out the progress.
The bleeding heart is so dainty and so pretty:
Bright yellow cheerful tulips:
I couldn't resist cutting a small bouquet for our patio area:
"The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth"
~Dorothy Frances Gurney

Adding dutch buttercake: (boterkoek)....think I'll call it a night now!
