Why yes I have August 8, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 12:58 pm

Today I checked the mail (which is right outside my door because they hand deliver it= precious) and inside was a letter forwarded to us from the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.  We have spent tons of wonderful days there and have had a family membership the entire time we were living there. They have an excellent children’s garden.  They also have special exhibits   such as the scarecrows in the fall and the treehouses in the spring.  We traditionally have gone to see Santa every year in their “walk through the gardens” light show. It is one of the best parts of raising a family is Huntsville.

I opened my letter from them and the first line reads:

dear garden friend:

And then there is a list of nine bulleted points that you would be missing if you didn’t live in a town with a botanical gardens.

I laughed out loud- I know exactly what it is like to live like that 🙂
