Our World Tuesday: The Roses in the Garden Bow and Ask Her Pardon...

Adella and I stopped at one of our favorite places on Saturday:  the New Hanover County Arboretum in Wilmington, North Carolina.


We always see beautiful flowers, delightful landscaping, and informative displays about plant life in this region.


 The Zen garden and the tea house are among my favorite stops.



The flowers are always the best things about the place--especially as a tonic after a few hours in the mall.


There is beautiful that, by its very existence, asks you, Is there any place to be but here?  No need to wait for the obvious answer.  Just come in.  And stay.
