 Final Day February 21 of Labor of Love Celebration and Giveaway–$25 Amazon Gift Card
Thank you for spending the week with me, celebrating the release of Labor of Love. On this final day, I want to introduce the Boboli Gardens. I’ve played in these gardens as a child and strolled the grounds as an adult. What beauty and artistic creativity! I had to write this story and give Ana a wondrous place to live and dream. Join her in the masterpiece of the Boboli Gardens.

    We went to the Ave Maria Grotto – Cullman, AL a long time ago. They were very nice.

    I have visited Old Westbury Gardens in Old Westbury, NY. It has a 44-room English manor house and features traditional formal gardens sprawling over 200 acres. I would love to visit The Garden of Cosmic Speculation in Scotland, it is quite unique, and only open 1 day a year!

      Boboli Gardens looks like a place I would love to visit. We have visited many beautiful gardens all over the world in our life time. I love flowers and gardens and so wherever we are we visit gardens!

    Aside from the butterfly garden at our local zoo (which is a very relaxing and enjoyable place to wander and enjoy), I’ve only been to one garden and I don’t think it’s famous. It’s called Coxhall Gardens and is a pretty area to explore. It’s fun to explore around and take the kids for a picnic to enjoy the sunshine!

    The Boboli Gardens sound amazing! I’d love to visit them!
    I have visited the Queen Elizabeth Quarry Gardens in Vancouver, BC, in Canada, and oh my goodness! It felt like a small paradise!! I fell in love! I’ve also visited Versailles in France which is majestic! And the gardens of Villa d’Este in Tivoli, Italia. It had a waterfall organ. So many wonderful gardens around the world! And I love gardens! Anything natural, in fact! Thanks for the chance!

    Many years ago I went with my mom and aunt to visit an uncle in San Francisco. He took us to a Japanese tea garden. I remember it being very lovely. Have no idea if it is still there. Our daughter and family lived in England for several years and when we visited she would take us to different places. We saw several gardens in England and Ireland. Oh, I just remembered a wonderful park in Hawaii, if I remember correctly it was Waimea Valley. I just remembered being in awe at the variety of plants there and then to think they are so different from the ones I see here in the northern climate. God has given us such a wonderful gift of beauty in the world He created.
