Cousins at Kanapaha

We got to spend a fun day at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens with my sweet cousin, Cindy this week!


It was such a treat to get to walk around this beautiful place with my favorite cousin and catch up on family gossip news.


We walked and walked, then had a picnic lunch and walked some more!


Wish we could do this more often!


Spending the day with family...


 it just doesn't get any better than that!

I’m joining Mosaic Monday HERE.

Cousins are just the best, Diana. I'm so glad you were able to visit such a beautiful place with her. I had a cousin visit with us last week that I hadn't seen for 12 years and it was wonderful. Have a great week. ♥

The "camera girls" on the move!!!!! I love gardens and Kanapaha Botanical Gardens looks like a wonderful place. Beautiful images. Happy Monday!

Jeanie said...

Well, it's pretty obvious you had a wonderful time! And with a like-minded soul. The photos are terrific!

Linda said...

Good times with your cousin! Y'all are so cute! I see you both have 'serious' cameras! That's why you post such good photos, I imagine! I'm hosting my siblings and cousins on Saturday here at home! Once a season we all get together for a potluck and a good visit! Your cousin seems to be like a sister to you! I think that's wonderful!

Jacqueline said...

Your photos always inspire me to get out there with my camera!

I love it when my cousins visit, or I visit them. I have many, but there are a few women my age and of course when we were kids we would play together at family gatherings so have great memories. Such a cute picture of you two photographers!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You two look sweet with your cameras ready for action. Unfortunately our small family was never that close and I don't see any of my cousins. It would be nice to catch up over a picnic lunch.

How fun and what gorgeous scenery!

Sarah said...

Late visiting from Mosaic Monday. '-)
Looks like a lovely day with your cousin. Gardens and time with family are a perfect combination.

Lorrie said...

Beautiful mosaics of the sights in the garden! And how fun to see you both hiding behind the cameras and then revealed at the end!

Pam Jackson said...

Great shots...love the one of you two ladies with your cameras.

Prunella Pepperpot said...

Dewena said...

It is the best medicine of all!

You two are so cute! And both nature lovers.

I bet the conversations were wonderful!

Janey and Co. said...

How nice. my cousin is coming tomorrow....and she wants to go to the zoo. Looks like you had pretty weather....Hope we do.

Inger said...

Love your mosaics, so colorful. You look so happy and relaxed with your cousin as she does with you. Family is truly the best.

Mary Cromer said...

Awe that had to be such fun. I have no cousins around to do such things with, nor even if they were, we are long distant relatives. She looks like she could be a sister. Happy you had time to do this, and the flowers are all beautiful my friend~

Cherdecor said...

Spending a day with family is so heartwarming. Your day with Cindy was beautiful, and you were in a beautiful place.

I am planning a day with cousins too! Yesterday my cousin, Mary, came over, and we talked about how we would pull it off. It is another gathering that I will look forward to.

There is a gentle rain falling outside. I love the sound of falling rain. Have a great day there in Florida where life is good and the sun is shining, my friend!

Nothing better than family time ... and to enjoy a walk and see these lovely flowers, that is just great.

All the best Jan

Oh, this picture is so cute of you and your cousin with the cameras. You found a lot of interesting things along the way. Is that a fairy or maybe an angel I see? So sweet.
