Treehenge

Not all “henges” are made of stone.

Lily (not Munster)

By Silver Blue

Something about a splash of colour that can bring back memories.

Maybe it was the heat, maybe it was the humidity, or maybe it was something in the reds and yellows that captured my spirit and transported me back to yesteryear.

Perhaps it’s because my mother (and my grandmother) used to raise lilies. In fact, my grandmother also used to raise the most awesome double poppies you’d ever lay your eyes on.

Silver Blue, who wishes there was always enough time to take just one more look around before we leave…

You’ve Got To Find….

By Silver Blue

…the right kind of garden to grow in.

Since I’ve been remiss in my daily posts, I thought I’d double up today.

Also taken at the Botanical Gardens, Norfolk, VA, there are three … statues tending their garden.

Each season, these statues look different. When I was there shooting the rose gardens, I encountered them for the first time. I must say that in order to keep all the plants at bay must take a LOT of effort.

I’ve not asked the back story to the statues, but I find them interesting. Almost … oh, almost eastern European, Slavic in their interpretations of the workers.

So, as I return to the Botanical Gardens over the next couple of months, we’ll keep an eye on these guys, and see if they’re doing their job, or just half-stepping. LOL.

Silver Blue, who remembers the last statue being drenched by a sprinkler (which made taking the photo interesting, to say the least). Guess even THEY have an intolerance to heat.
