Pop's Gardens . . .

After the wedding celebrations were done in Knoxville, we headed to Jim's parents' beautiful home in Elizabethton, Tennessee to spend a few days.  It was the first time that all of the cousins were together under one roof there.  : )

Learning how to pick asparagus.

Their "Pop" took them outside and showed them his gardens.  Megan and Brendan had seen them before when we visited last summer but my nephews, Andre and Jason, were seeing them for the first time.  

Pop and Megan.

If I'm remembering correctly, these are onions.  : )


Grape vines.

Baby grapes.

Nephew Jason and his trusty sword!!

Still more asparagus to be picked!!

Broccoli, potatoes and tomatoes.

Should we or shouldn't we???

What the heck!!!  It'll be fun!!!

Climbing back up didn't seem so bad!!

Really Mom/Aunt Wendy???  You want us to face the afternoon sun and pose for you???   Well, this is as good as you're gonna get!!!!  : )

Megan, Andre, Jason and Brendan.

Oh the drama!!!  LOL!!!

 I hope you enjoyed your tour of Pop's Gardens!!  : )

What I wouldn't do for a garden like that! And I love the photos of the kids posing. Such drama!
