I just love getting outside this time of year….here’s another neat garden here in Birmingham, Aldridge Botanical Gardens, that I visited this week. It was owned for years by the Aldridge family & they decided to give it to the City of Hoover for a public gardens. It’s a really neat place to visit (this was my 2nd visit) and it’s not even close to being in full bloom yet. They are known for starting a hydrangea called Snowflake that was discovered in the area many years ago & then patented by Aldridge. It looks very similar to the oakleaf hydrangea, but the blooms are a little different.
Check out the big bunny & the tortoise pulling the hare statues…I love those!
Here’s their website, if you want to take a look: Aldridge Botanical Gardens
On another note, I was tagged by Tonja and Sandy with the Thinking Blogger Award! Who, ME??? I’m honored that both these ladies like my blog enough to give me this award. Not so sure about the thinking part….you’ll find me doing more than thinking, LOL! So, I’m going to pass this award on to 5 other deserving friends. I’m still new to blogging, so I’m just going to tag others who have inspired me to think & be inspired! I’m just amazed at all the comraderie there is with bloggers…I had no idea until I joined the throngs. I’ve so much enjoyed getting to know all of you who stop by & visit me. We get a little glimpse into each other’s lives & if we can all share a ray of sunshine along the way, then we’re all the better for it. Life is hard & sharing it with special friends makes the journey so much better!
