Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Now then... as indicated on Sunday, there was a bit of an outing last week. Friday actually. It was a spontaneous thing. Dithered a bit, but it turned out bright and warm again and really had to avail myself of the opportunity. Benmore Botanic Gardens was the destination of choice.  Less than fifteen minutes drive from my door.  Today, being less speak day, just a few pretty piccies to whet the appetite (took over 200!!!). On Friday, come back to hear about something rather special which occurred as a result to listening to the inner voice... I so nearly didn't go!

Trust me... you are gonna be sick of the place by the time I'm finished....&*>

  9. Crikey ..... how could you get sick of THAT place?? They even have a bath with NO water. How good is that??? All you gotta do is stand on it and your all clean?? Sounds like my kind of bath.

  10. What a gorgeous place! Each photo more beautiful than the last. The inner voice is pretty much always right - especially for those of us with meno-ears ;-)
