The purple flowers. I saw some of those on Saturday. See my post later this week. I am not sure if it is a type of lavendar or what. I notice the flowers are fuzzy. Do you know what it is called?

You have such a talent of capturing a mood with your pictures...I think my blood pressure actually dropped while I was viewing them....that is until I saw the PUBLIC bathroom mouthwash...OH MY would you ever use mouthwash that was available to ANYONE who walked in....uh uh no way not doing it lol

I love the vacation home.
Very pretty, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! We've never been there. Those vacation rentals are beautiful. Do you rent them through the Gardens or are they privately owned? I wonder if they'll let you bring dogs?

Hi Sue,
Isn't BG a relaxing place! This was my 3rd time going. The first time was about 20 years ago...and it was before it was developed...just the ruins and museum...no golf course,cottages or restaurants. Loved all your beautiful pics! BG is really situated in a pretty area, isn't it? I loved all the rolling hills...like another world there. :-)

Oh, I tried to wash my hounds with the mouthwash, too...and so did one of my friends. LOL Fortunately, nothing came out...it wasn't working. I have a feeling everyone who goes in there must do that...that's probably why it doesn't actually work...so many folks trying to wash their hands using it. ;-)
