Not My Garden Flowers

 No two gardens are the same.
No two days are the same in one garden.
~Hugh Johnson
 A garden is never as good as it will be next year.
~Thomas Cooper
 Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination.
~Mrs. C.W. Earle

 All gardening is landscape painting.
~Horace Walpole
Oh and the fragrance in a garden sends our imagination on a journey.

Taken not long ago at the Lan Su Chinese Gardens, Portland, Oregon.
What peacefulness and beauty resides there.

Happy weekend, dear friends!
I can't believe another week has come and gone.
Savor each day and make it special.

Beautiful! I haven't been there but it's on my list. I think my sweetheart and I will plan a day to visit the gardens. Perhaps in the Fall. Hopefully the temperatures will cool and we can enjoy a day there.

Beautiful! The garden must have a particularly peaceful atmosphere. Visiting gardens is such a worth while experience. I'm thankful for the opportunity to do so.

Pretty garden pictures, Marilyn. And is that a pomegranate? I put one in Nel's stocking every year, she loved them!

Have a relaxing Sunday.

It never matters whose garden. What matters is the joy the flowers bring and the beauty you share with others.
