We headed to Blumen Gardens in beautiful Sycamore, IL. I've posted about them before. We first visited back when Jonathan and Charlotte were looking for a wedding venue. The beautiful gardens,
and amazing displays keep drawing us back. Even though it was raining, we enjoyed walking through the endless varieties of flowering plants, the vintage artifacts hidden among the trees and displays.
So many ideas, even as I post these photos I see things I missed.
The wreath looks great in my large hurricane. Ferns seem to be my spring thing.
We did go to one rummage sale in between the rain storms.
I scored this round beveled mirror. ( I just put it on the bench to photograph.)
Every house seemed to have a large mirror like this when I was growing up. Ours was rectangular, but with the same kind of beveled flowers. I am always looking for mirrors, a thing I'm sure I got from my Mom who loved them too. We walked into this rummage sale, one that I have found some great stuff in the past. The first room marked tools, had this mirror propped up under a table. We were in 5 seconds and I had my find of the day, maybe the year!
I should have been looking for a canoe, we've had so much heavy rain in the last three days. Hoping for some dry weather, and a little sunshine wouldn't hurt.
Have a great week my friends and enjoy this beautiful day!
P.S. Happy Birthday Jean! I remembered;-)
