Sunday Visit: Harry P. Leu Botanical Gardens

Last year my friend, The Librarian, came down for a mini-vacation. One of our planned outings was a visit to the Harry P. Leu Botanical Gardens.  When we got there it was raining and the gardens were not open. So, we only toured the art gallery, sat in rocking chairs on the building’s screened porch, and looked out over the beautiful lake surrounding the grounds. Though, different than planned, we had a wonderful time.

Still determined, after her visit, I bugged Hubby for almost a year about touring the gardens. Surprisingly on Sunday he said, “Yes, let’s do it.”

We arrived shortly after the doors opened at 9:00 a.m. With cameras in-hand, we were off to relax and enjoy nature’s beauty.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!
