Yesterday the Finnerty Gardens were filled with exuberant Rhododendrons and Hittys…

  1. WOW! Could these little flower bonnets be any prettier? The QH human has an eye for amazing and fabulous photos. This one is especially wonderful, the kind of photo that imprints on my mind and continues to bring me smiles. Thank you.

    • Thank you very much – it was fun going to the Gardens with my Hittys to see what pictures would suggest themselves! I especially like the one of Tatty in her giant white bonnet!

  2. I used your link to read about the garden..what a labor of love! The University has really gone to some lengths with the help of “friends” to save and nurture these lovely plants. YOur photos are great…the girls in their blooming hats…so sweet.

    • Isn’t it an interesting story – the plants are flourishing now – happily for them and for us! The Hittys have been eyeing those blossoms for years, I am glad this time we were able to get to the garden at the right moment with the camera and dolls and all!

  3. The flowers blooming in Finnerty gs are gorgeous. We have seen the many beautiful gardens in Victoria
    through our Alaska cruise information. The Hitty girls in flower bonnets are having so much fun. Thank you for your wonderful posts.
