A Second Year of Meggie’s Adventures Begins

It’s the first anniversary of Meggie’s Adventures! Last September I started this blog to write about all my favorite things: travel, ice cream (and gelato), flowers, going to the beach, and collecting postcards. Many of the stories take place when I was young, which is why the blog is called Meggie’s Adventures. But as I like to point out, I still love ice cream, flowers and travel so that hasn’t changed!

My first post was A Family Day at the Beach when we used to go to the beach in Maine. It’s been wonderful having this blog and I’m looking forward to a second year of fun adventures.

Summer Flowers

There have been so many colorful flowers this summer I thought I’d share these pictures. Some are from my garden and others are from walks I’ve taken. It’s also been a wonderful year for hydrangeas – I’ve seen them with pink, blue and white blossoms. Flowers are part of what makes summer so memorable…

Hydrangeas in June

This spring has been a wonderful time for bright, colorful flowers. A few days ago the hydrangeas in my front yard started to bloom. Last year they mostly produced leaves, but now there are flowers like this.

Some are blue and some are almost blue…

It’s been an lovely year for flowers!

This is for the FOTD Challenge.

An Ice Cream Adventure

“Here’s your ice cream.  Eat it outside.”

Meggie takes the cone.

She wanders into the backyard garden filled with lavender,

butterflies and hydrangeas.

Hummingbirds zigzag.

Ice cream starts dripping.

A bumblebee chases her.

Safe!

Meggie should eat the

melting ice cream.

Then she sees a chipmunk.

A new adventure begins.

This is a story I wrote earlier this year where the limit was 50 words. Although it’s about Meggie it’s definitely fiction – she would never let her ice cream melt!

Walking in Williamsburg

It’s a lovely day for a walk in Colonial Williamsburg to see flowers, buildings, and shops that are currently open. The tree-lined sidewalks provide enough shade to stay cool.

Flowers are in bloom everywhere!

It’s interesting to look at the shop displays.

This is a charming place to walk any time of the year!

A Walk in May

I thought the beginning of May was a perfect time to visit a park that has flowers, benches and even a fountain. Here’s the view from the entrance.

I walked to the fountain first.

If I followed these paths there were benches, fresh greenery and flowers.

Here’s a closeup of some azaleas.

It was a perfect day for a walk and a look at the colorful flowers. Spring has arrived!

This is for Jo’s Monday Walk.
