Seasonal Contrast in the Garden #16

Seasonal Contrast in the - Gardens at Waters East

Postings in this ongoing series will show the same garden “area” and “objects” at two or more different times / seasons of the year.  The contrast will offer the viewer an appreciation of the beauty found in the same spot but in different months.  Some of the photos have never been seen before, others were collected from earlier postings in order to provide the needed contrast.  Each season has its own “feeling”, has its own beauty.

The Asian Patio Arch with "viewing stone" on the left.

This posting is of the “Viewing Stone” placed at the entrance to the Asian Garden Patio.  In the Asian garden experience, one often finds a stone here or one over there that is raise up closer to the viewer so that its features stand out and are noticed by the passerby.  Thus a “viewing stone”.


Reference Note:  For a complete list of the ten (10) Principles of Design plus the special “Golden Principle of Design” used throughout Gardens at Waters East, check out the archive postings for November 14 – 24, 2010 and May 2, 2011.

NOTE:  All photos use in this posting were taken on the property of Gardens at Waters East.

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.
