Beautiful Weekend

On Saturday, DBF and I went to the Skylands Botanical Garden in Ringwood NJ. It was a little late in the season for some of the flowers, but the park itself is gorgeous. Now if only someone had remembered to check the batteries in her camera and make sure they had enough juice for more than 10 pics, but we're not going to talk about that. There were amazing statues all over the property, and this one caught my eye. Say hello to Diana. (Hello Diana!) Know what's so great about Diana?? She's the Goddess of the Hunt! How appropriate is that? Plus she looks really cool.
The flower garden itself was pretty small and many of the flowers were withering in the July heat, but I managed to find a couple that were still in full bloom.
This bridge/walkway looked so cool. I felt like it was something straight out of Lord of the Rings.
We're definitely going to go back, and next time, I promise I'll check my batteries BEFORE we leave. :)

Looks like a great place to visit! I'm definitely going there next spring for Lilac blooms.

I went there a few years ago when we visited relatives in NJ. The place is gorgeous. Thanks for the memories.
