Sand between my toes...

I've missed my garden.

We've been on a wonderful vacation at Virginia beach.  We played in the ocean, read on the beach, toured Colonial Williamsburg, and went through the whirlwind of Busch Gardens.

There's a post in there somewhere -- probably tomorrow.  I thought I would blog on the trip, or write some draft posts for later, or read blogs.

But I didn't.

I enjoyed the true vacation, but I missed my garden and the blogs.

And while reading garden magazines on the plane home, I found the inspiration I'd been missing in the mid-summer slump.

I made note after note about new gardening, landscaping, blogging and article ideas. 

So, tomorrow it's back to the real world or writing, drawing and planning.  (Oh, and laundry.)

But I really did enjoy having my toes in the sand!

You were in my old 'neighborhood'! We lived in York county, Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg are all right there together. The historical triangle.
I know what you mean about missing your garden, always good to be home.

I thought I was - thought about you when I got there! It was lovely and we had a great time. Things here aren't too bad, even though it's 100s now. They lifted the water restriction from 1 day/week to 2 days because of July rains, and I am watering more. I will probably cheat and water every 5 days, that just makes more sense, really.

Glad you had a good time. Nice to relax at the beach. Great shot.

Reminds me....I need a pedicure.

Welcome back.

welcome back...not any cooler, but definitely a lot less sand.

Diana said...

Linda = thanks. And I got inspired about my garden and my design work and writing, so it really was a good vacation!

Katina - yeah, and now it's just so miserable to work outside - and I really want to! Go figure.
