Hello everyone! This has been a snowy and cold
week here in the Hills. Maybe not as snowy as
it has been for those blogging buddies up around
the lake and Cleveland though. Everyone take care
I wanted to show some more pictures taken at the Franklin Park Conservatory on our visit last week. Keeping with the
“ Merry & Bright'” theme at the Conservatory they had held a Gingerbread House making contest for the children. Those were some talented children and they made some fantastic looking houses.
Doesn’t these houses and trimmings just get
you into the Christmas spirit? They made such a
festive display in the basement of the Conservatory.
This one must have included all of their favorites things along with the puppy. Hamburgers? I admit I love them
too. LOL! The gumdrop tree looks yummy.
The Grinch. This must be after he saw the error of his ways and returned all of the Christmas back to Whoville.
I have to admit I was never a fan of Dr. Seuss so I may
have this one all wrong.
This one of Worthington Inn won a Blue Ribbon.
Look at all of the detail on it. All those beautiful
leaves and flowers.
And then there were a few that were made by
the adults representing Currier and Ives pictures.
All decked out with a snowman and even a little
red Cardinal on the fence.
Or maybe a little cottage is your style. The snowman
was either melting or he had lost his head because
his hat and nose were in the snow. Looks like ours
right after the boy cousins took a broom and whacked
the head off of us girl cousins snowman. Yes, that is it,
because that has to be Grandma in the door telling us
to behave ourselves.
Around the grounds of the Conservatory grasses blew
and shone in the sun….
sparkling with their feathery heads.
Everyone have a good weekend coming up.
It looks like we are going to have a very messy one
here in the hills with rain and snow. I just hope it
all does not turn to ice.
