A fun day with friends at the Como Park Conservatory
Saturday, December 21, 2013
Today some friends visited us from my hometown that we have not seen in almost a year. Because they have a daughter that is in middle school and is very involved in different sports we have not seen each other since February. Today they came for a visit and we had a wonderful time. I have to say that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell them about Spark since we had lunch and they asked how we had lost our weight. So once again, I sang the praises of this awesome site and the awesome people that make this a wonderful community.
We did manage to spend some time at the Conservatory once again and I have to share some of the most beautiful pics of the flowers that bloom there this time of year. It is warm and so nice to walk thru when it is cold outside!
It was a great day and we said that we would make sure we didn't wait almost a year to get together again!
My good friend that I have known for 32 years.
A special girl, the daughter of my friend.
My friend with hubby and daughter.
The sunken garden room that they switch flowers in 4 times a year. Christmas time is always full of different Poinsettia's,
Those flowers really are so beautiful Holly, don't have many left in my garden now, my christmas camellia is beautiful now though. I see you got a picture of a cute yellow bird too, they are in the Conservatory? Such a great place to go to visit and take your friend to as well. Glad you had fun with your buddy. Beautiful pictures, thank you for posting, hope you are having a great Christmas day with family, 975 days ago
