This post is a continuation from the last one.The pictures are all taken on a day in early September,2015. It is my aim to show that both city and country have a lot of natural beauty.
We start this blog in the English Gardens.The Cleome are delicate and beautiful.
No visit to the English Gardens is complete without at least one rose photo.
The Gardens are always new and fresh.I had not seen this before.
Around a small pool,they filled these planters with succulents.
At the Water lily pond,I was impressed with the way this bud looked under the water.
Yes,they do add some blue tint to the water.I'm guessing it is something to keep the water cleaner.
Now we leave the city and head over to an acreage,owned by by Jake's brother and his family.
They have recently acquired this property and since I don't have to do the yard work,I enjoy the beauty all around the yard.
The late day sun highlighted these grasses and that caught my eye.
In the garden the Sunflowers were very pretty.The bee seemed to enjoy them as well.
Of course,I have to take a look at the back side of the sunflower.I love all that detail.
Still in the backyard of this place.The pond may be covered with algae but it is a place of beauty.
Once again,it was the evening light which added extra beauty to an already lovely place.
The yard is beautiful,but I must say it is the love and warm welcome I receive each time I go,that draws me back again and again.
Today,I am thankful for beauty in city and country,but even more,I am thankful for the love of family.
