A Stroll Through Longwood Gardens

On Tuesday, when everyone else went back to school,
my friend Linda & I went to Longwood Gardens.
We were celebrating our own "Not Having To Go To Work" day!

So...we leisurely strolled down the beautiful paths...

...enjoying the lovely flowers...

...and admiring those who did show up to work!

The gardens were filled with bees and butterflies.

At every turn, there was something spectacular to see.

Their roses were still blooming beautifully.

I love this hummingbird sculpture.

Fiery autumn colors

and pretty shades of reds and pinks.

I do love waterlilies ( I may have mentioned that once or twice in my blog).

It was so quiet and peaceful.

A very good way to celebrate being retired!!
