The Journey

I am looking forward to catching up with all of you! We spent Thanksgiving at our son's home, it was a nice day. I did get some things done on my computer vacation. I started wrapping Christmas gifts.

And we went to the yearly poinsettia festival at a local garden center. It was really fun! You will be going with me for the next few days, so lets start with the trip there! It was drizzling and foggy.


Though it was only about 10 minutes away, we passed some beautiful scenes.




We passed the pumpkin field I posted awhile back. It is still full of pumpkins!

This is actually the office of a plumber.

And here we are at the Festival!! To be continued...

Life’s not about arriving at a destination
Life’s about the journey and all the beautiful scenery along the way.

I loved my trip through the countryside with you and Phil on the way to the poinsettia garden. We had a similar place back home but nowhere near as charming or welcoming. It was just open for business. Very popular, it was, because of all the beauty, but just not the same.

Beautiful scenes. I am looking forward to seeing all those Poinsettia.

I do love poinsettias and look forward to your next posts.
All those barns and farms are just magical to me. Terrific photos, especially the one with the cows in the pond.

Okay - are you saying all those wonderful things are within ten minutes of your home? You are so blessed.

Oh you did pass some beautiful places in those 10 minutes. So pretty. I hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving.

Lovely photos. My favorite is of the two cows standing in the pond. And I love the quote about life being about the journey--not the destination. So true. We miss so much beauty when we're not looking.

Cannot wait to see your photos.
