A friend is a gardener for the soul!



Antique Rose 'Belinda's Dream'

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;

they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."


[Marcel Proust]


I had such a wonderful afternoon today, spending it with my friend.  After a leisure lunch at a Tea Room (Hart Sisters) she surprised me with a trip to the Antique Rose Garden of Sanford, FL, and did not stop there but took me to a German Deli & Cafe (Hollerbach's Willow Tree Cafe) where my German heart started to beat faster seeing all the goodies I normally have to bring back in my suit case when visiting Germany.  I will have to go back to this little rose garden to snap some pictures.

  2. Tea and gardens just seem to go together. The other day I took my Mom to the Sherman Library Botanical Gardens where we had afternoon tea and then toured the gardens. So relaxing! Glad you enjoyed your tea and garden day!
