Asticou Azalea Garden

Photobucket

While traveling from Thunder Hole, we unexpectedly saw this beautiful japanese garden called Asticou Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor, Maine. We were stunned by the view, so we made a sudden stop. Of course, what I had in mind?! What else but photo shoot again! With its colorful foliage trees and reflecting man-made pond, I abruptly thought of what outfit that will suit the setting. Good thing, I brought the clothes and quickly looked for a restroom and changed from what I wore here. Mr.Freddy and I didn't do matching outfits. He didn't dress up again. He liked what he was wearing, so I just let him be where he was comfortable on.

Photobucket

On this serene well-manicured garden we ran around and sneaked up behind dragonflies trying to catch them. Out of hundreds of dragonflies, I had only caught one, showed it to Mr.Freddy for a while and I freed it again.

Mr.Freddy stood on this healthy green grass, did his own version of make-a-wish. If others used a coin and a wishing well, Mr.Freddy had his own adaptation with making-a-wish. He drew the grass, made a wish before he threw it in the water. Wasn't he a clever lil' man to think of this idea?!

Photo shoots here and there.

I just listened to the news, we are expecting a snowstorm and there may be power outages tonight so if I can't reply to your emails and comments, you knew my reason.

thanks for your comment!
i realized i'd love your blog just by looking at your header! it looks so cute i can't even describe. what a wonderful idea you had creating this blog.
i'd love to follow each other, and soon you'll be able to really understand what i'm writing: these jerks won't let me get the google translator because of some problems so i guess if it won't work i'll just start writing in english and in german.

and your little boy looks so cute, fell in love with him again and again with every new photo! and you look kinda lucy liu, you knew that ?

hope you'll visit again soon,
love xx

hello answering your question... here in Portugal, we haven't the custom of celebrating Halloween, although there are already many people who do it, but it's not my case. I hope you and your son have a lot of fun and then show us the pictures! I've done the post about your blog, I hope you like it! bisous
