The Last Day Of Winter

What Do You See?

Yesterday was the last full day of winter. We celebrated by taking a trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas to go to Garvin Woodland Gardens. Our granddaughters have been spending the week with us and we wanted to take them to the Gardens.

Tulip Girls

We spent the afternoon there and the girls were able to explore as we took our time walking through the gardens. The tulips were at their peek, and they were amazing.

Tulips, Tulips, Tulips

Besides the flowers, the girls loved seeing the ducks and the fish.



The girls were very busy as it takes a lot of time to stop and smell that many flowers.

Smells So Sweet


At the Gardens, there are so many photo opps, and I had the most beautiful models posing for me.

We spent over three hours walking and exploring. Finally the girls got tired and needed to ride on our shoulders.

What an awesome day we had on the last day of winter. It was as good a day as a grandparent can have.

  1. Your photographs are getting better and better, Richard. I see you have discovered some textures and different filters. Just beautiful. :)

  2. Beautiful children; beautiful gardens! I've visited Garvin Woodland Gardens a couple of times, but never when the tulips are in bloom. Looks like it might be time for me to do that. Lovely photos, Richard.

  3. Beautiful pictures and beautiful little girls. Didn't look very much like winter. =)
