We gave Chance another Chance... and it was awesome!

You're in for a treat. Another day trip following our morning in Columbia.
Where could we be headed?
It's sure inviting....
Notice the vintage dress in the upstairs window?
We decided to take a quick trip back to Centralia to check out Chance Gardens one last time. In an earlier post I showed some photos of it, but the rose garden was not in bloom yet. Well, what a good idea! Today, it was floribunda in action! Each rose has a little name stake, and Mom was out there memorizing names of roses that were especially huge, red, and beautiful. It lacked only a little bench where we could sit and enjoy.. The benches are pretty far on cobblestone for a walker!!! We also circled the enclosed garden again and got some more shots of that beautiful space. Enjoy the pretty florals! I'm glad I woke up and remembered to slip fresh batteries in my trusty camera!!
WE hooked up with Outdoor Wednesdays HERE
We won't tell her we caught her in the roses!!!!


Hope you enjoyed this as much as we did!!!!

I love to imagine it way back when. Wouldn't you love to spend a day way back when?
