B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Now I have that silly song in my head - Don't worry, be happy! ;-)
Just had three "flower" days and thought of you. I had 4 long time college friends in town for 3 days. We made a brief trip to the Ft.W Botanical Gardens Monday, Ennis bluebonnets yesterday, and out to Clark Gardens awhile today. They were all mostly mid-day, but maybe I got a few shots.

11 Apr 2012 9:39pm

@B. Thomas: How was Clark Gardens? I want to go there next calm day.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Clark Gardens was good. The roses were looking a bit off, but there were still some pretty ones. The bluebonnets are going to seed but the irises and poppies were still nice. Everything was looking really pretty.

12 Apr 2012 3:58pm

@B. Thomas: Super - hope I can get out there before it gets hot.

Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

Lovely. Perfect title. :-) You now have bees in your home studio????
