I love going to Cambria Pines Lodge for my rug hooking retreat! They have beautiful gardens surrounding the lodge. I didn’t take too many pictures, but here are a few. This beautiful arrangement was actually a garbage can topper!
My mom loves succulents so I took a couple pictures for her:
I really liked the way these were arranged into the stone wall.
And the bird houses! I took these pictures because I’m hoping I can find someone who will build a couple of bird houses like this for me 🙂
When I taught my quilting class in San Luis Obispo, I met a really nice young woman there. This is the second time she has come up to Cambria to visit with me. This is her almost finished quilt from the class.
I absolutely love this saying. I know you will too!
We went out for lunch, and I had a piece of Key Lime Pie that was almost as good as Love Pies when I was visiting Shelley in Texas 🙂
My rug hooking friend Mary Lynn, on the last day getting her last look at the ocean before she returned to Illinois.
When I returned home, there were an overwhelming number of eggs that had been gathered in the week I was gone!
There is a wonderful nursery across from the Lodge, and I usually pick out a few succulents for my mom. But this time, I liked them so well (and she literally has HUNDREDS of them) I kept them for myself. I just potted them up today. Fingers crossed that I can keep them alive.
Next up: a garden and chicken report 🙂
