Feed Your Soul: Fuller Gardens Part II

The Conservatory

Just a quick reminder......the day my mother and I went to Fuller Gardens, it was wicked, wicked hot and humid. It was Wicked Witch , 'I'm melting' kind of weather. That said, there isn't anything we wouldn't do for you followers (OK, do not call me out on that, it's a bold face I am NOT bungee jumping for you guys or eating bugs on a dare...not doing it), so despite the oppressive heat, we made our way from the rose garden into the conservatory.

Yes, it was even hotter in there, but it was worth it. It was a whole other world.

Check out that fern! Yup. It's a fern. A staghorn fern and it was massive and totally funky.

Just like the rose garden, there was so much pretty going on it was hard to know which way to look. Lush and green with occasional pops of color.

My mother Marge is putting on a good front, don't you think? You'd never know it was 96 degrees with high humidity, and triple digits in the conservatory.

Did you catch Cousin It? And the tomato horn worm look alike? Crazy Cacti.

Did you get a chance to feed your soul this weekend?

Our was filled with getting ready for the big 4th of July Lobster Bake and attending our neighbor/friend Joan's retirement party. Woot woot woot....three cheers for retirement! Such a fun time. We even had a bit of a sing song out under the tent. Good thing all the neighbors were invited.

We just had an absolutely drenching downpour roll through. Could be more because we are still in the midst of high humidity. It's supposed to break just in time for the 4th.

If you didn't hear the news that google reader/gfc is gone, kaput, stick a fork in it - it's done....that's the scoop.
