Huntingdon Garden Center, Starbucks & Pancakes!

After our walk around Huntingdon we decided a cup of coffee was very much needed so we went to the Huntingdon Garden Center. I could spend about a week there! The store itself has everything from flowers & plants, garden & patio, gifts of all kinds, yarn & needlework, pets of all varieties & more than I can remember!
We headed first to the back where there is a "self serve cafeteria" along with guess what? A Starbucks! After indulging in cappuccino & hot chocolate we took a walk around outside.

These are just some of the outdoors plants

Flower pots as far as the eye could see!

These are conservatories - sun rooms!

More flower pots

Decorative edging & pavers

Every choice of garden decor

Fountains & ponds

See why I could spend a week there?

We later celebrated Shrove Tuesday in a time honored tradition of making pancakes. They are very different to american pancakes & probably closer resemble crepes as they are very thin & slightly crispy on the edges. You sprinkle them with brown sugar & lemon juice & roll them up. Yum Yum!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
