Mini IU - Part I

michelle_zone4September 10, 2009

We were greeted by Missy when we arrived. Honey and Tom were fabulous and we had such a great time.

Honey's garden is fabulous. I loved the way it backed up to a pond.

We had lunch at Henry Ford's estate. There were gardens to see there as well.

We went to Greenfield Village - a creation of Henry Ford. Honey's brother works there so he gave us a personal tour and his lovely wife came along as well. Of course there were gardens to see there also. The first 2 shots were a cottage he had dismantled and brought over from England. The 3rd shot was Rick and Tom moving the roundhouse at the train station. The last shot was our model T ride. Honey, Tom and their SIL were in this one.

I'll add more later.

What fun Michelle. Honeys front landscaping has really matured. It all looks great. Good to see Missy all grown up too.
Looks like everyone enjoyed the Henry Ford place. How Nice that you had a personal tour guide.

You know, I feel well traveled this summer and I haven't even left home. Idylls are the best for sharing trips.

Michelle....glad you were able to get to visit with Idyllers. Not sure how far Honey and Tom are from you. I remember Missy! Such a beautiful dog. Honey and Tom's garden is so roomy and neat. Love that angel.
