It has been a while....


Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with my good friend from North Carolina, Betty John. She stayed with her daughter's family but we met up for lunch one day. On Sunday, I met her daughter and two grand darlings at Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw.

And it was a hot, hot day! We tried to stick to the shade for comfort as well as good portrait light but it was still a scorcher. We traversed on paths over 16 acres of gorgeous, ponds, special gardens, flowers and statuary. 



The girls were real troupers. They were really good models and listened to instruction.


What a cute pose!

what a cutie pie! She is a real charmer. And always ready to pose and be silly.


Like a mermaid by the Koi Pond, in her aqua sun dress.


These sisters couldn't be more unlike; one is fair and tall, the other dark eyed and olive skinned. Both lovely in their own styles and personalities.

A tea party in a little secluded spot. This tea set belongs to the girl on the right, make no mistake. LOL
A little imp, if there ever was one. :o)

Time for a siesta!
So graceful!


Lovely!

Being silly!

Little garden fairy.


Posing like fashion models. Seventeen Magazine, are you looking?

Time to call it a day! Thanks, girls! It sure was fun!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
