Hello Pat, I am home from my visit to MI and still catching up with my blogging friends. The Botanical Gardens mosaic is beautiful. I would love to visit there one day. Beautiful photos Pat.

I scrolled down to your beans and cornbread post and it looks so good. Today it has been in the 50's all day and I made bean soup with the 21 bean package. We will have it for dinner tomorrow. I will make cornbread too, only a bit sweet.

Congratulations on approaching 400 posts. A milestone for sure. All lovely and quality posts Pat and that is far better than quantity.

Hugs, Jeanne

Love your pictures - very good idea to have an email...maybe when I am famous one day......LOL !
Love what you said about being a deputy to help round up those prisoners.....you being a country gal yourself :o)

Gorgeous pictures, Pat. I'll be headed over to the Berkshire Botanical Gardens in Stockbridge, MA, this weekend for their annual fall festival. I wonder what, if anything, will be in bloom? Maybe I'll join the mosaic party next week! :)
