We had rain on and off all day here today, but it tapered off after 3, so I picked up a coffee and headed out. Stayed under the picnic shelter until I finished my coffee.
Coming outside after all the rain, the gardens had that bright green sparkly glow that lights up the world when you get sunshine after a rainfall. The wet leaves were sparkling, the sparrows were splashing in the puddles and mist was rising off the roof I was under. Nice temperaturesx and a gentle breeze, it couldn't be better.
I headed further to the butterfly gardens and poked around there a bit. Sent a couple of messages using voice activation on my iphone - like magic! I'll definitely be doing more of that.
Then who do you think came walking down the path but Patsy and Bill! Incase you don't recognize the names, Patsy writes an interesting daily blog at 'Patsy is Chillin'. Sorry I can't link you directly, but check it tomorrow and you just might find a picture of me. We sat in the garden and talked for most of an hour. They're in town to get some minor repairs on their RV.
Patsy and Bill are snowbirds, heading to the southwest for 6 months every winter. Then they bring their big fifth wheel back here for the summer. They park it on a rural property about 45 minutes south of here. Patsy has a garden, and brought me a fresh tomato which tasted delicious. We visited them there (with George and Suzie) last year.
I did get a good picture of the happy couple, but of course you'll have to wait for that. Thanks so much Bill and Patsy for taking the time to find me.
