Saturday Photo Hunt ---- String(s)





STRING(S)



I had no idea what to post for this week, not even an idea to pursue with my camera. But browsing through my library of photos I came across this one. Strings. Of course, perfect.




This photo was taken at a garden tour which the Faculty Women's Club held as a fund raiser. We toured various members' gardens and there were little snacks and drinks provided at some houses and musical interludes too. This was the last garden I visited and we sat in the shade of the trees, sipping a cold drink, for it was a hot summer day, listening to the son of one of our members who is accompanying him on the grand piano, play the cello out on the sundeck. What a lovely finish to a very pleasurable tour and we raised a goodly sum for the ten scholarships which our club provides at the University of British Columbia.


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERONE

That's perfect for the theme. What a great finish to the tour to listen to music in the garden. The garden tour sounds like a good fundraiser for an important cause. Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for visiting us at Snap2. I'm doing the snap2 visiting this weekend (we alternate) so if I don't come back as me and repeat myself, that's why. Well I am me but hopefully that makes sense, Carver
