Oh Asheville, you have stolen my heart! I’m absolutely in awe of your beauty! The way you love to care for the Earth. And how absolutely kind you have been to us every visit! Of course I love being there because of more important reasons such as visiting my family, but I really do adore the city itself! They have outdoor festivals for being GREEN, now that’s my kind of city! It is the number one city in the US that placed in being the most GREEN! The recycling and caring for the Earth type of GREEN! Just so we’re on the same page here.
On our second day there we woke up early and started the day off by visiting my 94-year-old Granny. She was such a trooper. We took a few pictures with her (for much-needed memory), looked through a ton of albums with her, and listened to her childhood, youth, and young marriage memories. She remembers everything so well! Every face in the album she named by name and last name. Her stories made us laugh, think, and cry! But that’s for another blog post. ;)
So after spending half the day with Granny and wearing her out, we left as and let her rest. The next stop on our to-do list for the day was going to a local park. I remembered about Botanical Gardens, a park that we visited a few years ago with my sisters. Vitaliy has never been there so the experience was much more enjoyable. We walked around the beautiful park for around two hours not being able to resist taking a few pictures of each other! That’s what happens when we both take a day off with our cameras. We definitely needed a day off just to ourselves, and we had a great time. We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them for you! ;)
The gift shop in the park had this amazing texture that I fell head over heals in love with!
How could I resist?
The trees have began to bloom.
Friends are like flowers… Not sure how.
Remember those days when carving your names in a tree was cool?
Tiny flowers are the best ;)
My overly-handsom hubby! :)
Can’t you feel the love?
Liked the color combination…
Found this to be the funniest name… The Virginia Creeper in North Carolina… How ironic.
Subie would not have liked that!
The tree that Jesus’s thorn crown was made of… The picture shows only the freshly sprouted thorns, but as they grow they harden and become as sharp as needles.
I absolutely LOVE this next one!
I forget what was so funny but I’m sure it was hysterical by the way I was laughing.
Blue and brown go extremely well together don’t you think?
Happy Monday Everyone!
