We decided to do a bit of sightseeing while here in New Brunswick. Bruce wanted to go to Minister's Island, and, of course, I chose the Kingsbrae Horticultural Garden.
Bruce was tired by the time we got there after touring the huge house on the island so he mostly sat while I enjoyed myself wandering the paths.
If he had gone a little further he may have been more impressed.
My Daughter, Susy would have liked these teapot trees,
and I know two of my grandchildren would have loved this horse.
They were both in the children's section of the garden that entered through this arbor:
My daughter Anita has globe thistles like these in her garden but when I think of thistles I think of weeds.
Maybe after seeing these I may be tempted to grow some myself.
There was nothing peach colored in the garden so my daughter, Samantha wouldn't have been very impressed, but I enjoyed it.
I am reading what I wrote and it seems obvious that I am missing my family; everything in the garden reminded me of them.
I love it here, but I'll be quite happy to get back to my own garden and my family next week.
