Yesterday morning was simply beautiful (the afternoon turned out a bit stormy) and we decided it was a good time for an outing to historic downtown Savannah. We packed Winslow in the car and off we drove...We wanted to see what was blooming already. Downtown Savannah is always a little ahead of us who are living closer to the coast. We found wisteria,
lady banks roses,
and a pretty little rock garden.
Savannah is filled with gorgeous squares, perfect to sit and look around, to read or to eat your lunch,
beautiful garden or passage gates,
well-cared for house fronts,
romantic historic homes framed by majestic live oaks,
and carriages pulled by grand looking horses.
Our ultimate destination yesterday was Forsythe Park.
I wanted to get a look at the new concert space and cafe, housed in the newly renovated fort. It'll be a perfect place for outdoor concerts!
In Forsythe Park, a few azaleas were already blooming,
as well as this little shamrock,
a beautiful pink bush I don't know by name,
ornamental cherry trees,
and redbud trees.
The park was filled with families with children, people walking their dogs, or some just sitting on a bench,
or lounging on the grass.
Winslow thought it was time to visit the new cafe. We sat outside, chatted with numerous people and knew instantly that this will be one of our new favorite places to visit...
Ok, change of subject! Look at those books I got at our public library the other day.
Now, I am waiting for some of this
and some of this to arrive and I foresee hours of fun new projects!
Some people like to focus on one thing only forevermore. I need variety, even in my creative endeavors. How about you?!
But don't worry, I'm still painting, knitting, crocheting, cooking, and baking. There's time for a little bit of everything...
