Strolling Through the Orchard – Part 1

My friend Elizabeth and I had a girl’s day out, finished with pizza for dinner after Larry got home from golf and the remainder of the mixed berry custard tart for dessert.  Mixing the Berries  So I was not in the kitchen cooking at all.

The original plan was for Elizabeth and I to go paint, but once we got to the painting place, we found it it was closed.  So we headed over to The Orchard outdoor mall instead.  Though the flowers and murals were beautiful and very colorful, there were more stores and restaurants closed than open.  The whole scene was a very sad sight to see.  The streets were basically empty with the exception of the few hopeful shoppers.  It was like walking through a ghost town.  But as usual, we made the best of it and still managed to enjoy ourselves.

The plants and flowers.
