The Hershey Gardens...

As you know we were in Hershey for our anniversary.
Lets take a walk through the very beautiful Hershey Gardens!!
 
 There is a Butterfly House and Children's Garden as well.

 My Butterfly Bench is still here,
vacant and waiting for me to sit, relax and pose for a picture.

   I always think of this as "me"!

 Gorgeous blooms are everywhere.

 This is the Spa-tacular Garden...
A tub filled with plants used for lotions, fragrances and sponges.

  I just had to try on the "rock slippers"...
 
and because he can not be left out of anything,
the hubs did as well.
They are not comfortable (smile)!!

 Beautiful yellow blooms are everywhere...

 A heart shaped pond in the Children's Garden...
(Sharing this pretty heart shaped pond image with Clytie at Random Hearts)

is the perfect place for a picture of the "sweet" couple. 
 Over the years, we have always taken a picture at this spot.
 
This Art Exhibit called Four Surreal Seasons was really beautiful.
 


 These very unique art pieces were created by the students at the
Pennsylvania College of Art & Design

 






It was a little hot on this day, so we were not able to view everything.
But that's o.k., the Hotel Hershey provides free tickets
for the gardens and we enjoyed the time we spent here.
 
And I did spend a lot of time in the Butterfly House,
that was my favorite part...pictures on Friday & Saturday!

  3. That is a place that has been on my bucket list. I have wanted to go all of my life I think. I think it started out just because of M&Ms. I love that butterfly bench and I love both of you and Chuck wearing those rock shoes.
    I always love the butterfly garden.
    Your pictures are just lovely.
