Thoughts to celebrate the deeply rooted appreciation, love, and joy you find in gardening
and the nature that cradles all of us.
Every now and then, this Blog will post a quote that speaks to all of us who share a deep respect and love of nature and gardening. Along with the meditative quote, Gardens at Waters East will share a few never before seen pictures from its photo files. Here then is today’s posting to feed your mind, spirit, and delight your eyes.

one receives far more than he seeks" - - - - John Muir

Looking down, or looking up, each hike on a trail brings discoveries. On each of these hikes, many photos of the native wild flowers were taken, more can be found in the archives listed as - - - Watershed. Enjoy traveling along some of the paths and trails all within an hour, many trails within only a few minutes of the Gardens at Waters East. More facts and a description about the watershed that cradles the gardens can also be found in any number of those “watershed” postings.
NOTE: Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here. It is what it is.
