Come With Me to Wonderland




Right next door exists a delightful garden in a well structured backyard, so very different to our own. M and R have been away, leaving an open invitation with me (and my camera) to enjoy their garden. Step inside with me and see the wonders I have found over the last week of warm days, dewy mornings and spring thunderstorms.


























You may like to see this post following this rose as it opened.

Blue wrens flittered around in the peace and quiet of this little wonderland keeping me company as I soaked in these delights, a privilege I am very grateful for.

Piękne kwiaty rosną w ogrodzie z otwartą bramą. Uwielbiam pnącze bugenwilli, ale niestety u nas nie może rosnąć w ogrodzie. Piękne zdjęcia zrobiłaś. Pozdrawiam

Deprived of colour at the moment, I'm living on southern hemisphere blossoms and my own memories of summer. Thank your neighbours for me to allow you to share their bounty with us.

O sweet Jesus! All your creation reminds us of Your glory!

Seeing Each Day said...

It must be great that even though your neighbour's has given you an open invitation anytime, that you can spend this time while they're away to take as many photos as you wish without feeling like an imposition. The first one is enticing and your third one looks like you may have pinched the two white flowers from an iced cake decoration - that whole shot is lovely with the angle you've taken it at. My favorite favourite is your rose capture, look how you've mastfully(spelling?) framed it and then your details with the silver like beads around the petal edges.

Linda Makiej said...

Beautiful work!!

Satakieli said...
