Thank you for joining me again for this most lovely day in the gardens last week.
As I mentioned last time I was quite taken with the great old trees.
The gardens were varied and lush
Behind a fence two geese were very busy preening
moulting I suspect, certainly indifferent to us
downy feathers all about
much more handsome for their efforts
Such a serene setting for the bandshell
And again a massive tree nearby
the base of which was SO expansive
the path took us over a little bridge with a babbling brook on one side
easing into a placid stream on the other side, with another of those model buildings I mentioned last time;
this house about 2 feet long and just as high
the plants started getting more exotic
this "fruit(?)" looking like an artichoke
It is the tree on the left, rising about 15 feet high
Wouldn't you think these aloe-looking plants were quite small?
until you see Wally beside them? I think they may be agave.
to be continued...
