Magnolia Leaves and Blue Moon Nursery


My Little Man loves the magnolia leaves... He would collect them tirelessly...


And, I would enjoy his collecting them, tirelessly... I also enjoyed time with his Momma... It seems so long between times that we share.  We had lots of fun adventures:   searching for the perfect costume, playing in the park, visiting the Brookshire Museum, and enjoying family gatherings.


Our last adventure of their visit was to Blue Moon Gardens.  It is always a treat for me to visit there.


  Never as much of a treat as this time, with Little Man!  He loved the water features and all of the fall pumpkins and flowers and creations.


If you haven't been this season, it's worth a trip to see.


Plus, their mums are gorgeous!



Oh, I am missing these two... or more.  ;)
Now, it's back to life as usual...

He really does look like a "little man" in that cute hat too. I know what you mean about visits being to far between. Sometimes I think we should just all live together! Your daughter is beautiful..like her mama. :D

Tanna, I know you miss them greatly. I just left my daughters and cried most of the way home. I will go back and visit in a couple of days though since she is close enough. After staying for five days it was hard to leave, but life goes on and they will do fine. Looks like y'all had a great visit.

It is especially hard to have distance between children and grandchildren. This little man of yours is as treasure. Hugs and squeezes to him!!

OMG, I do love the pics but that little "or more" comment warrented a call from Nanny today. Please tell...

Dana said...

Looks like you all had such a nice visit. Thank you SO much for sparing Amanda and Alex for a few days so we could visit with her and Alex!

What a handsome little man! It looks like an exceptionally great day was had by all!

Amanda said...

LM did love those magnolia leaves, didn't he? He doesn't have nearly as much affinity for the maples here. LOL!

Glad we made it to Blue Moon. Those sculptures alone were worth the trip. I've never seen a nursery quite like that one. I have to say that I really like the fairy gardens, too.

Lots of fun adventures! I'm still enjoying looking at all of my pics! =)

Such a sweet little guy!
Looks like you had great weather for visiting the gardens. And what a fun place to explore.

I've only been there once, but I would LOVE to go back! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and what a treat I found when I popped over to yours and find that we have much in common! What a doll baby your grandson is...and your daughter is lovely. And you're just right up the road from me!! :D
Thanks for visiting....let's keep in touch!

Tanna! Lovely tribute to Little Man, your daughter & Fall. The photos are well positioned and I love the orange. How are you? I've been MIA on blog commenting. Trying to come back.

What a sweet little boy, love that cap! It looks like you had a wonderful time together. We savor those moments, don't we.

Lauri said...

Oh my goodness, those pics are GREAT! How in the WORLD do you get LM to wear the precious hat and galoshes? I may just have to feed my shoe addiction and go get some of those rainboots for my little one. Too cute!

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful visit together! It was lovely seeing you and your home during my brief visit with LM!! Oh, and his Mommy, haha!

Vickie said...

Me, too, Tanna - "and more" jumped right out at me, too!

I love Blue Moon gardens - it just feels good to be out there in all that loveliness! I'm planning a trip there myself soon! I've gotta see all the fall stuff.

Glad you got to spend some time with your lovelies - now I need me some green boots like Little Man!

my grandma & i didn't get to live in close proximity, but she had a great influence on my life...and we didn't even have computers!

beautiful time.
beautiful family.
beautiful memories.

hugs!

Debbie said...

Hey Tanna -- love the pictures! Been to the museum and really like it, and I haven't been to Blue Moon, but I like it, too, already. Would love to go there before December. Looks like you and the loved ones had a fantastic visit.
