Minter Gardens ~

…my finale post from the beautiful Fraser Valley and Mennonite Girls Can Cook Summit!


Bev and I arrived to Minter Gardens in style in her cute little Bug!


We started with brunch at the Trillium Restaurant.

















So what makes it easy for 10 women all together for the first time ever to be relaxed and enjoy each other? I think it begins with our  faith in God, our savior Jesus Christ, our common comfort food experience, our heritage, and our openness to new adventures. I am aware of what a gift it is to have made this wonderful connection with these beautiful girls.

So this post wraps up my posts of my Mennonite Girls Summit. Till the next time…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Ellen, your photos are fantastic ! you got some exceptional shots! I was sorry to miss that part of our day together!
    Thank you for posting this ‘memory’ day !

  2. I love that old VW. How cool. And the gecko and the ones with the water fall are awesome. What beautiful grounds they are. Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience you had. 🙂

  3. What a great post. It was so good having you here Ellen. We are so blessed in our friendship of 10! Loved walking through the gardens again this AM here on your post. Kathy

  4. A beautiful setting for beautiful women experiencing a beautiful friendship time. I’ve been to the garden and had lunch at the restaurant too. Don’t you wonder why the Fraiser Valley girls don’t hang out there more often?

  5. Hello Ellen B,

    Oh I hate to say it, but I think those gardens look more spectacular then Buchart ;-O. Would you agree?

    I hope you’re doing well Ellen B. Me, I’m still here 😉

    xoxo cori g.

  6. Cori – Brian Minter our local garden expert would love to hear that compliment. We all love the gardens and have been to many beautiful weddings there.
    Ellen, you and your camera have captured the gardens at their best – I love your pictures.
