We’ve finally had some lovely spring days, and today Marley and I decided to go take a look at the Hershey Gardens, just to be outside for awhile. There weren’t too many flowers yet, but there were some early spring flowers and buds.







Mostly I found myself photographing the “critters” that live in the flower beds and around the garden. I suspect some are more obvious right now with so few flowers to hide behind.



















And this wonderful and mysterious brick someone had bought…


Lastly, this charming cat, who used to live in the gift shop, came home with me. Don’t you think our yard is a better spot for her?

  1. These places are deadly to my pocketbook. I have been looking at a frog Buddha for my pond for 2 years now. I already have a dragon there and it’s a small pond. I love the brick. I could hang that in my house! I have a crouching cement cat at the end of my driveway leading the way to the back yard. Love the butterfly bench too!

    1. I am usually immune to gift shops. We’re at the stage of our lives where we are getting rid of things, not adding so much. But that cat just spoke to me, especially with all the work I do with community cats.

    1. We had never really noticed the statues before, but without flowers they just pop out at you. It will be fun to see them in the midst of vegetation later in the season.

  2. Great photos!

    I’ve been keeping my eye out for a Lab sculpture for Xander’s grave. It’s one of those things I’ll know it’s right when I see it.
