"Those who have experienced Paris have advantage over those who have not. We are the ones who have glimpsed a little bit of heaven, down here on earth." - Deirdre Kelly

Your Daily Reward

"Flowers seem intended
for the solace of ordinary humanity."
- John Ruskin

Yes, sadly, summer is coming to an end - sigh. But there is still one place where you can revel in the lovely bountiful colors of summer - at your local horitcultural company and/or botanical garden. Check out this national Botanical Gardens Directory (a top 20 list); and the Garden Web Directory (to localize your search). Of course, you can always just Google: Botanical Gardens + your state.

And when you go, don't forget to be a little fancy - pack a picnic; fill a cooler with a bottle of bubbly, water and fresh squeezed juice; and don't forget a blanket and maybe a tiny iPod player. You'll find that most of these gardens have a lawn for such wonderful fanciful things, maybe you can even sit among the blooms! Bring your Mr./Ms. Gorgeous, the perfect romantic interlude, bien sur. Can you think of a better way to bid adieu to summer?

Day Four: Spend an hour or two in a luxuriantly blooming garden.

Vivre! Rire! Aimer!

  1. Baby, you were amazing in Paris - entrancing the crowd with your beauty (art, photography, jewelry and you), then engaging them in a fascinating diailogue about your exploits....
    You are always the life of the party....
