THE TREE 2015 #6 July

This month there is a different approach to THE TREE!  Over the last months the focus has been on the base of the tree, the trunk, and the many plants in the ground developing around that trunk.  Reviewing the past postings, it is easy to see the quick development of the leaves of plants at the base and even some flowers that have happened since the early days of Spring.
Now, with this posting, imagine that THE TREE is taking the photos.  See now what THE TREE  “sees” as it stands here in the Gardens at Waters East.  It must be a rather happy tree being able to look at and admire the surrounds – the other garden plants, the views of the ravine, the every changing waters of Lake Michigan, the Asian Patio Garden in which it stands, and so much more.

Enjoy being The Tree for a few moments.
Look through its “eyes”.
See what it sees each day while standing outside my window.

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.

  2. You have a beautiful garden...I especially like the rock wall with plants spilling from the spaces between the rocks.

  3. Wieder finde ich deine Bilder sehr schön. Besonders gut gefällt mir die Natursteinmauer mit den gelben Blumen in den Zwischenräumen.
