I realized something as I was uploading these pictures: somehow, I managed to capture the gloomy side of a perfect spring day. I wasn't even feeling gloomy...!
In fact, I had gardens in my mind. That's the reason we ended up at a place where architectural salvage & antique garden decorations are sold.
There, the path takes you through a beautiful, ivy covered mess of weathered statues & old iron-wrought fences. A heaven of tarnish and patina, ranging from teal green to rusty orange...
We daydreamed of a time when we'll be able to plan our own shady, mysterious garden.
A garden that blooms at night—moon gardens, I think they're called—with the beauty of moss, dew, and crickets...
And, see? Flowers after all.
Hobensack & Keller may be a timeless place of statues & evergreen foliage, but once you leave it, you are reminded that spring is finally taking place.
Never before was I so happy to see signs of spring!
It has been a long, long winter, but now bird voices & tiny blooms fill my walks...
