Sunday afternoon in the Garden

Monday, April 25, 2011

The Botanical Garden holds magical powers over us! When the first sun comes out we are thinking of visiting this lovely place! Armed with my camera I delight in the artistry of the designs, the colors, scents and the atmosphere!

Orchid Show 2011
We caught the last day of the Orchid exhibition, something we pretty much never miss and have observed for many years!

These pictures were taken by my son.
But although these Orchids are magnificent, this year I actually enjoyed the fresh beds and fierce budding flowers - tulips and narcissus - and the flowering trees much more.
There is something youthful and strong, yet innocent to these first emerging buds. 

An abundance I enjoy watching.
The colors are so beautiful and every time I leave from there I am so inspired for my own little outdoor space.

The air was richly perfumed with  spring scents, moist soil and the fresh green grass made people playful and we enjoyed the magical blossoms.

I took so many pictures, as always, it is hard to select the ones I like best to show you.
So there are a few more! 

Have a great week ahead!
We are back to finally finishing our major outdoor project at home. It's looking good so far! Soon more about it!


PS: I want to encourage you to check out my other blog part: House and Living! There you'll find inspiration for books, movies and more.
