Off into the woods. Enjoy your walk, but make sure to take a seat along the way. The cooling air is nice.
Do you not feel the temperature dropping?
Birds are tweeting and you instantly get more spring in your step.
The sounds in these woods are both relaxing and invigorating. You feel renewed.
You can always pull up a bench, sit and have a chat, but this is a place for quiet. Think outdoor church sanctuary. The towering trees give a sense of retreat and sanctum.
The Asian garden is peaceful, tranquil, secluded and harmonious. It blends into the surroundings in a calming and undisturbed way.
The bridge is simple, yet elegant in form.
The curved path pays respect to the bridge in acknowledging form.
The brook babbles, breaking the silence so gently. Let’s descend the stairs for it is time to head back.
If you are interested in picturesque photos that I took from along the coast of Maine, check out my other blog, Green Apples. I really appreciate you having a look. I will be posting the better scenic images on Green Apples because I use that blog more for photography with all the tutorials and commentary that I post. I hope you enjoy my photos from Maine. The post following Seagulls Got It Made in Maine will show the effect of 6AM morning light on native and field plants. Fine textures and soft color come alive. If you enjoy seeing plants a little differently, see the photos in this post on Green Apples for Friday night. I hope you stop in.
On GWGT, I will show the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and a few other tourist areas that Carolyn and I visited. We had so much fun and I miss her and beautiful Maine already. Oh, I miss the seafood too! But next week, there are two large gardens with drifts of flowers from the Buffalo area you might really want to see. They are a plant lover’s paradise.
