When I heard that Dawn hadn't visited the Rhododendron Garden lately, I told her the flowers were at their peak and she needed to see them soon. So, today Dawn, Lael, and I visited the gardens.
Though I doubt that this is the Garden of Eden that the Bible had in mind, there is something magical about this beautiful garden set in an old-growth forest:
And as if our trip to this new Eden wasn't special enough, on the way home we caught a glimpse of the doe and her fawns I've seen since we moved here last fall – and this time, for a change, I had my camera with me.
I could almost believe the doe finally allowed me this one picture of her fawns because we had had Lael with us today:
We reach out
only to touch
the nature within
