Pammie and Mz Bubbles in front of the fountain and the open air shelter that over looks the Japanese Garden. After we had viewed the gardens for several minutes, we hear splashing in the fountain and a father was letting his 2 year old son cool off in the water.
Those who have followed my blog will recognize the gardens but without the glass from the Chilhuly exhibit last year. This view is the left side of the garden from the open air shelter. The photo below is the right side of the garden from the shelter. As we were standing looking out over the serene setting, a little lady asked us the name of the trees with leaves shaped like a fan. I was happy to inform her they were Ginkgo trees.

This photo is looking back down the hill over the Japanese Garden. I hope you have enjoyed Cheekwood as I plan to return and gather more photos .
The kitty justice is I would rather have spend my morning at Cheekwood instead of getting a floor estimate. Awaiting to hear the amount which I am sure will send me into sticker shock.

Dear Dianne ~~ All your photos of Cheekwood have been lovely. It must
be a beautiful place to visit.
I am so lucky not to have any damage to my heart and I guess I owe this to the medical team treating me. I am doing fine and lots of exercises that will help me get strong enough to walk unaided at least inside.
Glad you enjoyed the jokes - the Dried arrangement and the children's Bible answers. I liked your cousin's "Round yon Virgin"
I wish you enough my friend.
Love and Peace. Merle.

Thanks and it is a very beautiful place to visit. We are running about 10 degrees hotter than normal, more July weather than May and soon to be June. This overly hot weather may keep attendance down at the Garden. Peace

I am glad you will put this on your things to see list. Happy to see you out in the blogging world. Peace
