Photo Essay - Winter 2010-11 #1
Gardens at Waters East has taken more than a thousand (1000) pictures of the gardens during this Winter season.Taking photos was a great way to be outdoors while yet unable to get down in the dirt.
Since there are so many pictures, only a small portion have been selected to reflect the days of the Winter 2010 – 2011.They are broken into a number of postings.Viewers, if they so choose, can look at a one or the other postings in this series and not have to view a long running almost never ending “photo shoot”.
Here then, is an overview and a recollection of Winter past.May it prove to be an opportunity for “reflection” and “pause” on a season that quiets us all down just a little, and gets us ready for the seemingly endless and busy season of gardening and growth which comes next.
Enjoy the Beauty.Enjoy the Quiet
Pause & Reflect
