Seasonal Contrast - #28 Entrance Gate

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.  These photos are of the Entrance Gate area.  I designed and created the gate in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright.


Notice the angle design - often seen in Wright homes.

 The red, black and white "Triptych"
sits on top of a salvaged pillar from a home in Chicago.

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. The summery scenes are lovely, but I like the winter ones just as well.

  2. This is fun! I like seeing the different seasons and different angles scenes. Did you get snow last night/today? We didn't get snow but the highs dropped from 60 on Sunday to 39 today. Blech.
