Our World Tuesday: Airlie Gardens

Last week, we took in Airlie Gardens with one of Adella's friends.  It was great to be there when the azaleas and the camellias were in bloom.



Then there's the Bottle Chapel.  I tried to see it in a new way since we've been there a few times before.
This time around, I saw the faces more than the butterflies in the bottles. The chapel and surrounding sculptures honor the visionary artist Minnie Evans, who was a gatekeeper there for many years.


It's a joy-filled place that is new every time.




It's a mad world.  Seize your happiness and love it.
