August - Review 2012

August, the third of the “summer months”, has now come and gone.  It is time to look over some of the many views from Gardens at Waters East.  More than 700 photos were taken in the gardens this past August.  It is so very difficult to limit this posting to only a dozen or so that reflect the many phases and patterns of plants here on the shores of Lake Michigan.  Knowing that there are so many more that could be viewed and enjoyed;  nevertheless this posting will try to capture the whole range in only a few select photos.  In the days ahead, some others will be posted in the series titled Blog Shots.
None of these photos have been posted until now.
Enjoy your visit.
