Weekend Reflections; Tranquility

This elevated view opposite the Japanese Pavilion, looking across the pond, definately evokes a feeling of peace and serenity don't you think?

Hunter Valley Gardens, N.S.W.




...this one was my long-time screen-saver, especially lovely to look at through the searing summer temps.  


...and I just love the rocks around the waters edge here; all the irises and water-lilies, the trio of stones nestled on a ledge set under the water.  The Japanese sure have a very unique and special gift in landscaping.
Location: Japanese Gardens, Adelaide, Sth. Australia

I want to sit here on the rock during a warm summer day with my feet bare and dangling in the water....

Hi there - it does look like a place where you could relax and go down a gear or two.

In hot weather I fill my screen saver with images of snow! I'm not sure it helps, but it’s worth the effort!

I feel soothed just seeing your photos. I remember our July when irises are in bloom and the threads of weeping willow get longer and longer. The colors in your autumn must be fabulous, too.

Thanks for your visit and a nice comment.
