Use Your imagination...


It's another warm, humid midwest day and what a perfect day for strolling through the amazing flower beds at Shaw Garden. One can get lost for hours just meandering, taking pictures, watching people, relaxing and enjoying those wonderful cooling breezes - when they come.

When I turned the corner and saw this, I immediately reverted to my childhood and
thought of a Dairy Queen Swirl Ice Cream Cone.
Come on, use your imagination...or was it just me?

Or perhaps the heat and wishful thinking!

Of course! This is so clever.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your kind comments! I am enjoying looking down all your posts (especially the farm markets, because I am a farm market freak -- I love 'em!)

Yes it does. But it will have to be double dipped in chocolate. What a beautiful garden.

Well I can definitely see how you thought that! That is a beautiful garden! I wish we had access to something like that where we live. Thanks for sharing the pretty pic.

I had to laugh reading your thought on the DQ cone. Funny how different things come to mind.
