Brookside Gardens, Morning


One of my favorite places to walk on an early spring day when I lived in Washington.

Susan, this and the one below are particularly beautiful: i love the handling of the light and shadows in this one; and below all those almost goemetric shapes mesmerise.

Susan, yesterday when you mentioned Sligo Creek, I figured it was conincidence, and that there was certainly more than one Sligo creek in the US. Today, well, I know exactly what you're talking about, Brookside Gardens is just down the road from me, and it's wondrous! Love the look of that wall.

Thanks for your comment, Nel. I really enjoyed the gardens and greenhouses when I lived in Washington. And I'd bring my truck to the stables to get horse manure for my suburban garden--good preparation for my current rural life in Vermont.

This brings back lovely memories... I used to go to Brookside Gardens all the time when I was a child. Especially loved the Japanese-style garden there.
