A Backyard Treasure



”Be the change that you want to see in the world.”~Mahatma Gandhi


🌻Hello, sweet friend and Happy June!🌻



The expression “you don’t have to look very far to see how lucky you are “ took on a whole new meaning recently…



as Joe and I headed home from an out of town trip






discovered a hidden treasure. practically in our own backyard

(how lucky is that!)













The Elkton Community Education Center (ECEC)  is a 30 acre nature preserve that includes extensive flower gardens















native plant park and nursery,
















art exhibits



and a Butterfly Pavilion.



During the summer months they offer guided tours and an on-site cafe.


And what backyard treasures are you hoping to discover this summer?


I had to laugh when I heard myself say “freeway” instead of highway… It’s my California roots.😎

    Thank you for the reminder that there are ‘hidden treasures’ right in our own backyard.
    Your California roots are good!
