Yes it snowed again in Our Town. These snows have been kind of hazardous for driving. It is better when the snow has stopped when it’s time to drive to work. There’s that knowing that the commute home won’t be quite so treacherous.
That was not the case today. The Roomie went to work and got out early with both times the driving not such fun times.
We all arrived home and Sheldon and I got to spend some time playing in the snow. All in all not a bad snow day 🙂
We went to Strasburg to see the trains. I wasn’t sure about this trip at first but I learned that I do have such a connection with trains I never before realized. Maybe it’s the age thing or the fact I took my first long distance trip on a train.
They even had some funerary there which made me feel completely at home.
Shelly loves trains, as we all know, but I don’t think he was quite ready for Thomas!
Thomas was looking just a little scary when he pulled up to the station.
The train yards were his favorite. We had a blast! The Choo Choo Barn had full replica of the town in miniature model trains. We had to pull Shelly away from this venue because he would have lived there forever 🙂 Good times had by all…especially Shelly!
On Saturday the Roomie, her MIL and Bean took us to Longwood Gardens.
The flowers were exquisite.
I had a great time hanging out with Shamy too. They are more fun than they look.
Look they almost held hands under the Wisteria Tree.
The gardens are on 1077 acres of land once owned by Pierre DuPont who was a great champion of Horticultural causes.
He began Longwood Gardens with the purchase of Pierce Woods that was originally slated for demolition but he purchased the land and it’s trees to conserve the vast collection of trees planted by the Pierce family.
So many beautiful flowers and plants. The orchids are a prized collection. So if you are in town for a visit…they’d love to see you there!
