Good afternoon, luvs! I’m enjoying a wonderfully cozy day at home as one tropical storm after another blows through in a whirl of wind and raindrops.
As I listen to the storm rage I’m watching British murder mysteries and editing photos from a long ago trip to Versailles. Since my poor camera has died a sudden and irreversible death, I won’t be able to share new photos with you for a while. I hope you won’t mind a detour to the past until I’m able to get a new camera.
Today we’re heading back to the gardens of Versailles. While the palaces are a dizzying confection of gold and crystal well worth an agog gaze or two, the gardens are by far my favorite spot.
One gorgeously sunny day in October, my friend Amy and I wandered the grounds (and palaces!) for over twelve hours. We were groaning like old biddies by the end of the day, but what we saw was worth every hobble and creak.
I hope you think so too.
What are the prettiest gardens you’ve ever seen?
