Weekend Road Trip

We spent the weekend visiting my mom. Some might say that traveling in North and South Dakota is the middle of nowhere... Well, I actually like the wide open spaces...the fact that you can see for miles...the sky seems so big! It has its own unique beauty.
My hometown is now home to a unique place to visit called the Garden Dwellers.
The flowers were so colorful...and tucked in amongst the flowers were rows and rows of fresh herbs. The aroma of basil, oregano, and thyme was powerful. They harvest and ship these herbs to supermarkets in the area.

Classes and retreats are also available. See their website for more information.
We visited mom at her place, did a few chores for her, went out to eat, and had good conversation.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog, because I am happy to have found you and sooo enjoying reading your posts! I'm glad you like teaching High School Students, because I'll have one in one more year (:o) Please wish your dear mom a Happy Birthday...glad she embraces life so well.

When I saw you were from South Dakota I remembered I've just read a trilogy by Debbie Macomber which is set in the ranchlands and where Grand Forks is the major town.

Looking forward to keeping touch with you,

P.S. How very funny that your parakeet created the phrase "Pretty Kitty" birdie!!
