July 21 2017 – In My Garden

July 21 2017 – In My Garden I’ve mentioned a time or six that I’m at a writing retreat this week. No internet and little phone reception.

We took a short cruise to Egg Rock Light House to see wildlife (seal pups…so sweet) and then went to Asticou Azalea Garden. The garden was in full bloom and stunningly beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous.
