Last week- on my Earth Day post- Barbara commented that one does not need to go as far away as Costa Rica or Hawaii to find some "amazing things in nature". I could not agree more.
The recurring seasonal bloom of flowers is one of the most extraordinary occurrences in nature.
In honor of May Day- I will share my garden- as it looks today- with all of you.
Take a moment- slip off your shoes, meander down the stone paths, feel the moss between your toes and smell the sweetness of their scent on the air.
And please do not look at the weeds.
Click on the images to make them larger and just look at the amazing detail of each bloom. Truly, works of art brought to you by Mother Nature.
A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.
We begin with my favorite tree- gorgeous, graceful, Japanese Red Maple.
And, finally, my favorite in all the garden- White bleeding heart.
The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms, Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
