Count Your Blessings and having too much fun.

Just a brief flyby post.

I got an email from Ariadne today with a photo of her stitch of "Count Your Blessings". She has asked me to post that it is ready for moving on and to please stop by her blog and enter to be the next traveller.

Here is the link http://ariadnefromgreece.blogspot.gr/2012/06/giveaway-win-and-travelling-pattern.html

Here is the photo of her finish.

I am currently on a road trip with my BFF Beatrice. We have arrived in Houston, Texas and are travelling to Galveston, San Antonio and Dallas/Fort Worth before returning home to Canada. We are having so much fun. Just wait till you see the stash photos ROFL.

And I have to show you this. Yesterday she and I went to the Moody Gardens Rain Forest in Galveston Texas to see Morticia - the corpse flower - in full bloom. You can read all about the corpse flower from the link.



 A wonderful lady by the name of Donnita Brannon gave us the best tour of the rainforest. How wonderful it is to have a guide who knows all about all the different plants that we were viewing and who obviously loves her job.
This is Donnita with my sister Sherry.


Sherry, Beatrice and I with Morticia.

No stitching photos - sorry. Having too much fun.

Until next time I do have something special -  Check out this frog! and Donnita says he is very endangered.

Hi Kathy,

Road trip!!! What fun!!! I won't bother
asking if you ladies are behaving your-
selves because somehow I doubt it!!!

I've heard about those corpse flowers
and they sure are mighty impressive
looking. Love the name ... Morticia!!

That frog is pretty ... just keep it
away from your stitching!!

Have fun ladies!!

Cheers!!

Love your photos of the gardens. You guys look like you are having fun. And as much as I love that little yellow frog (he is so cute) don't bring him home with you!

I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award.

Looks like a lovely trip. I enjoyed the photos but... Where are the stash photos???!!! :P The corpse flower looks real interesting. I've never heard of it until now. Quite ashamed of that seeing how it's from my part of the world.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Sounds like you're having a fabulous time! Ok, do those frogs have to follow you everywhere, lol?
The info on the corpse flower was fascinating but I really don't need to smell the perfume on that one!
Hope you travels continue to be safe.
Say hi to Beatrice for me!
