MJ took me to a wonderful little restaurant inside an old house, but before we had lunch at the Dragonfly Tea Cottage, we checked out what was hiding just beyond the street. A tiny historic village with buildings, plantings, and stories to tell.
There were no guides to regale with facts and fables so we read the markers and peeked in windows...
and wondered what fried marbles tasted like. Anybody ever heard of fried and marbles? I'm guessing something like donut holes.
What lay beyond the bend of the sidewalk?
A garden of surprise and delight. Who knew Sylvania held a secret place right in the middle of town! Read more about it here.
I used textures on all the photos in today's post, but the last one is my submission to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.
