Thanks for stopping by! I will have Part 2 of my visit next week .

I love gardening and Gardens , I think it is because God's first choice for our home was in a Garden .I will leave you with this wonderful verse form the Bible .

"The Lord God took them and put them  in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." Genesis  2:15

I am linking to Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday

  12. Hi Myrna, I had a nice visit here today, enjoying the lovely photos. I was in Hawaii this summer and did a whole site full of pictures. We visited the Mission Houses in Oahu were the first printing press there produced written language for the Hawaiian people. I believe the parts from the homes came from Mass, by way of So America.

  13. Gorgeous skies and I love that bridge! Thank you for sharing all of those beautiful photographs.

  14. That was great! I feel like I've been on a vacation! You really did good getting all the different attractions photographed.

  35. Myrna...these photos make me wish I was there...walking through that amazing bridge....seeing the wonderful all those colours....

  36. I'm trying to decide which picture is most interesting. Mission impossible. I've never heard of old Salem before, so I naturally found all pictures most interesting.
    When closing my eyes, I see the young girl with cotton basket sitting close to the patchwork carpet,and yes, that's definitely my favorite. The scene is so vivid, yet peaceful, I'd like to walk in and sit down beside her.
    I'm looking forwards to next half of the Salem report.
