What’s Happening in Nashville: Cheekwood in Bloom

Margaret:  “It’s going to rain!”
Marianne:  “It is NOT going to rain.”
Margaret:  “You always say that and then it always does!”
Marianne:  “There’s a bit of blue sky, let us chase it!”
Sense and Sensibility 1995 movie based on Jane Austen’s novel

Find your inner romantic/Marianne and a bit of blue sky April 14-15 to take advantage of half-priced admission at the closing weekend of Cheekwood in Bloom 2018. Spring blooms and the Beer Garden with seasonal brews, craft cocktails, food trucks and live music 11-4 PM beckon. Other weekend events and more details can be found here.

Cheekwood Botanical Gardens transports me to the Lake District in England and other sunny times when I need them. Members can roam here regularly.

The Sphinxes of Cheekwood are calling. Sphinxes with female faces became popular as garden ornaments in the 19th century.

Barcelona Tulip is one of my favorites. Love the city, too!

Miss these from my grandmother’s garden where my sister, friend, cousins and I carried them as children in pretend weddings with the boys next door.
