I'm so glad you could join me today to see a few pictures of the water garden tour we attended last Saturday. It was a blazing hot day but we took off with our water and Diet Coke to have a look at the beautiful ponds and gardens that people have created.
My pictures are of gardens and flower beds as much as ponds. I just love to see the plants that people put together and the spots they choose.
Here in Oklahoma we fly our university flags proudly. See the OSU whirlygig?
Cathy and Carol, the OSU pictures are for you. :)
The huge yard above belonged to an elderly couple. They still do all the work themselves. It was park like because it was just so beautiful. They had a lovely pond in the trees. Guess I didn't get a picture.
This pond was huge and meandered through a large area of the yard.
You know, someone commented last week that they could never participate in a pond tour because her pond is little. Truthfully, on a tour like this you see every size and shape. It's really all about meeting the nice people, sharing ideas, and visiting.
Aren't the fish pretty?
Love this view. These nice people were hanging out on their porch in the shade.
I took so many pictures that I'll have more to share on another day.
If you love to read like I do, then you know that you finish some books and think, "That was pretty good."
Then there are the very rare books that you just absolutely hate to see end.
Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt was one of those books!
Girls, I thought I would write down some of my favorite parts of the book to share with you because I loved Beth Hoffman's writing style so much. However, after awhile there were just so many parts.
Here is a short synopsis in my own words:
Cee Cee Honeycutt is a young girl whose mother, the former Vidalia Onion Queen, is mentally ill. Cee Cee's father is absent most of the time because he can not deal with the situation. When mom is killed in an accidental run in with the ice cream truck Cee Cee is sent to live with her Aunt Tootie in Savannah, Georgia. For the first time at about age 12, Cee Cee has people who love and take care of her.
I call this genre southern fiction and it is my favorite!
If you enjoy stories about women, the south, and loving relationships you must read this.
