Roses And More

Grandma's fourth day here in Houston was a busy one for everyone. Perpetual Motion didn't have school, so we decided to drive up to Brenham, Texas and see a few things. We mainly went for the Bluebell Creamery, but since we were already up that way we decided to see some other places as well.

We began at the Antique Rose Emporium. This place has every kind of rose bush you could possibly be looking for. They also decorate their different areas with some really strange items, like the above bottle tree. Most items of this nature are for sale as well, so if you see something you like, you can take it home.

Among the gardens is a butterfly section. There were many of them twittering here and there; Perpetual Motion was fascinated. The one shown above had rather pretty colors we thought.

This fountain was a big hit since it had water. Apparently Perpetual Motion is like her aunt R-Shelly because the both of them are slightly obsessed with fountains. R-Shelly contains her excitement a little better than the itty one, but not by much!

I had to show you this photo as their expressions are hilarious. Methinks they are done with the photo-taking portion of the morning...

Um, yeah. Want a bed frame in your garden? Here's how to do it!
