Steve,Kai and I spent a few hours at the English Gardens in Winnipeg on Saturday,June 7.
We had a beautiful day,but unfortunately the timing was not exactly right for lots of flowers.
I have always said that beauty can be found anywhere and on this day I needed to follow that advice.
Despite the lack of flowers,I did find beauty and I want to share some of that with you.
I might add that all images are taken with the Olympus E-M 1.
At the entrance to this garden,I noticed trees which in the past I have not paid any attention to.
The sunlight created a mixed palette of light and shadows and made for a pleasing look.
Inside the gardens I found an ornamental apple tree covered in blossoms.Trying to capture this detail was not that easy,but you get a feel of how pretty that tree was.
Alongside one of the paths the ferns were growing in profusion.I had very little time to compose a shot but got this one which I really like.
Kai enjoyed climbing on the various statues.This old man seemed to need someone on his lap for a minute or two.
Steve did not know that I was taking this picture,but I thought that he added the perfect touch to this path. Kai is walking right in front of him,only her bright pants are visible.
Even though I had hoped for more flowers,we had a wonderful time.Any time I get to spend with these two people is special.
There are high spots in all of our lives and most of them
have come about through the encouragement from someone else.
