Seasonal Contrast - Stone Bench

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.

There is a stone bench at what is called “Middle Arch”.  It is one of three stone benches specifically place in the gardens so that a visitor can stop and sit at certain “viewing point” taking a few moments to appreciate the views of Lake Michigan and of the nearby plants.
Here are some seasonal photos of the Middle Arch Bench - - winter through summer.
Enjoy this one small aspect of the Gardens at Waters East.  Imagine the views you can see while seated there.

Always try to add an extra - view of Lake Michigan from the gardens.

Reference Note:  If you check out the archives for this Blog, you will find a number of “contrast” postings in this series.  All help in understanding the gardens throughout the year.

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

  1. Such diversity and yet constant beauty.

  2. Zwischen den einzelnen Bildern gibt es einen starken Kontrast. Wenn die Steinbank nicht immer im Bild wäre, würde ich nicht glauben, dass es immer die selbe Stelle im Garten ist, die du auf deinen Bildern zeigst.
    Hoffentlich kommt endlich der richtige Frühling um eine Pause auf der Gartenbank zu genießen.

  4. very interesting your comparison winter vs spring, but always beautiful, wild and natural, like I love ;)
