A Gift & A Delight - from - Guatemala

Gardens at Waters East
November 6, 2011

Over the past three months (October, November, and December) Gardens at Waters East has been hosting a university student form a small town in Guatemala.  Though the gardens here would never try to compete with the beauty and grace of the quetzal, or the many flowers and textures found in the tropics of that area,  Gardens at Waters East has been able to share with him the beauty and setting of this time of year on the shores of Lake Michigan.  The student was asked to choose a limit of 16 of the more than 800 photos taken during his visit which best expressed to him the feel of the gardens this time of year.  Many of the photos were taken by the student.

La perfecta relación entre agua y tierra.  Entre  los colores de las plantas, los animales silvestres,  los colores del agua del Gran Lago, todo  en contraste al cielo y las nubes. El uso de las formas, orientación y adecuado posicionamiento de piezas en relación a otros elementos del entorno. Todo tiene una razón y explicación. Hablo de Gardens at Waters East.   J. Fernando

The perfect relationship between water and land. Among the colors of plants, wildlife, water colors of the Great Lake, especially in contrast to the sky and clouds. The use of forms, proper orientation and positioning of parts in relation to other elements of the environment. Everything has a reason and explanation. I speak of Gardens at Waters East.  J.
