Flowers in January

Happy New Year! There aren’t any outdoor flowers in bloom where I am but here are some pictures from Kew Gardens I took a couple of years ago. It was a sunny day in May and I saw so many beautiful scenes like these.

This was a good choice for lunch.

It was a lovely day for flowers – I hope it isn’t long before spring is back!

Scenes from a Flower Show

Since there won’t be any outdoor flowers until spring I thought I’d share some of my pictures of the Philadelphia Flower Show from a couple of years ago. The year I went there was a snowstorm but since the show was indoors it didn’t matter. It was a wonderful reminder that spring was coming and so were the flowers!

I’d like to go back again soon and see more colorful flowers…

Late Autumn Flowers

Now that it’s November these should be the last of the outdoor flowers. It’s much colder and the leaves are turning beautiful colors. Here’s a picture of some mums I saw on a walk a couple of weeks ago. I hope it won’t be too long before the flowers are back again!

This is for the FOTD challenge.

Farmers Market

I live near a farmers market and now that autumn is approaching there are lots of seasonal things for sale like pumpkins, mums, apple cider and bouquets of flowers. It was sunny and warm yesterday when I went to the market and I saw these cheerful displays.

It will be difficult deciding which pumpkin(s) to take home!

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.
