The Bog Garden

This past week the family and I took a small vacation to try and break up the cold weather and discover signs of spring. The day we left, there was almost a foot of freshly fallen snow on the ground! We had a great time in North Carolina. It was still chilly and a bit rainy but it wasn’t snowing. We went to the lovely Bog Garden in Greensboro, North Carolina. Signs of spring were everywhere. As we strolled along the boardwalk, we discovered the garden waking from its winter slumber. We even found one of the owls nesting in the garden again for the second year in a row.

  • Thanks for hosting! I've share what might (or might not have been) my grandmother's warm milk recipe… for bedtime. And a picture of a cardinal from Thousand Words Thursday. 😉
