Went to visit the turtles

I’ve been laid up for just about a week now. Saw the acupuncturist today and she fixed me up pretty good, I’ll know better tomorrow. But.. anyway, before I landed myself in this predicament , I went to our little conservatory, Forgetting not only was it Sunday but also the beginning of feb. recess :(!!! It was very crowded but I managed to get a few shots off .

It was nice to see a mom taking Her son out shooting

And then there r the Quails under foot , nervous little things , they are. With signs every where to b careful where u step..

And a mascot to end all mascots:). Yeah she lives there too.

But u cant help but stop by and see these crazy turtles , I’m told they are always “doing it”

A different type of turtle. He’s generally on land .

Well I found one room with no one in it . But it was time for me to go.

As it was getting way to crowded for me.

So off I went following the brick road.:)

Have a wonderful week end everyone

Daytrippin’ at Sonnenberg Mansion

It’s funny how you take things in your own Backyard for granted….. I’ve never once thought about visiting this place, but the thought of moving to another state has really made me look around.And this past Saturday we took a ride.. just down the road from us, really..30 min. away. to..Sonnenberg Mansion and Gardens. it sits high on a hill overlooking one of out finger lakes.

there was a craft show going on , with food and music, so i thought i could get my Hubby to go.ill going to start with the out side of the mansion.

we were suppose to go to a family picnik a few hours south of here, on Sunday… but…we thought it was on Monday??? needless to say we never made it. so i made the best of.. i seem to be getting pretty good at making lemon aid….
so i went to the George Eastman House and Museum of Photography (OUR GOD) if you will …:) well being a holiday the building was not open.. that was fine, that meant no one was there, and i go to walk the grounds… George loved His gardens.. so ill show you around  the gardens… more to follow
