Sunday Nature Quote: Sun Roasted Peace

“A good roast of sun, it slows you, lets you relax–and out here if there’s anything wrong, you can see it coming with bags of time to do what’s next. This is the place and the weather for peace, for the cultivation of a friendly mind.”

A Word A Week Challenge – Garden

Gardens and flowers are some of my favorite things to photograph. I remember the story “Secret Garden” and often think of gardens as a special place to be alone, a place where I can transport my mind to a mysterious place. I will take this challenge literally and offer for your enjoyment a few of my favorite gardens.
