Two summers ago to celebrate Sage and Laura Burdine's college graduation my friend Linda and I took our daughters to France. Top on our list was a bike ride to Giverney to see Monet's a Gardens. It was fun and worth dedicating the day. Linda and I have gone on the water garden tour in Houston and are both pond people. As a pond person Giverney was on my bucket list.
I officially became a pond person in 2007 when we converted our 15,000 gallon pool to a water garden. Griffin was a senior and pretty persistent that we needed a pond. He was right. It is full of water lilies, bull frogs, goldfish and koi. It is one of the joys of my day and great for unleashing my creative side.
I have recently drawn my own version of a water garden - murmur of the water. But that is another post.
