Want a "Quickie"? Today 6.29.14


(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken early this foggy morning at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 6.29.14.  These are only a few ( 13 ) of the many colors seen in the fog while walking the paths.  The one thing missing – is Lake Michigan!  One would never know it is right there at the edge 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.

  1. I'm definitely taking some inspirations on your formal garden, I love the way it looks and the plant you have chosen: Armeria (it looks like armeria) one of my favorites.
    Kind regards

  2. Very nice pictures from a foggy day :)


  3. Beautiful images,even in the fog,or maybe in part,because of the fog.

  4. I am quickly falling in love with your garden! I love the photos of your formal garden and your lake path, as well as the baby bird. This must be a wonderful place to explore.
