“Garden Bench Floral”

While anxiously awaiting the dawn of what I hope will be a springtime full of abundant blossoms and flowers, I thought I’d take a moment and share an image from last summer.

This winter has been quite long, and even though the calender says spring, it still feels and looks more like winter.

This lovely garden bench with flowers growing around and through it, gives a glimpse of good times to come. An image from the garden during the most prolific time here, which is late summer.

I included some garden quotes and proverbs below. Enjoy!

“Garden Bench Floral”

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
~ Victor Hugo ~

I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.
~ David Hobson ~

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
~ Greek proverb ~

Gardening simply does not allow one to be mentally old, because too many hopes and dreams are yet to be realized.
~ Allan Armitage ~

May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!
~ Irish Blessing ~

“It’s All Mine”

A brief encounter with a gull and a fish just before the fish was devoured! This gull looks like he’s very satisfied with himself as if he’s saying “It’s all mine.”

"I Got It"
“I Got It”
"Yep It's Mine"
“Yep It’s Mine”
"Whatcha Lookin At"
“Whatcha Lookin At”
"It's All Mine"
“It’s All Mine”
"My Catch"
“My Catch”

Just after this frame he flew down onto the ground and in a flash, the fish was gone!
