Nature, Writing, Photography - Celebrating the Positive
love that portal!
I agree ... the imagination is a secret garden ... full of surprises! Lovely images.
Isn't that first photo from the Botanical Gardens? I remember seeing it before. I would love to have that as an entrance to my yard!Yes that would be awesome.Love Di ♥
Sooo lovely. I am seeing your secret garden and the purple flowers with deep sigh.
That gate got me. Love it.
Those are both beautiful shots but the water flower shot is especially striking. Love the color!
I would love to walk through that round doorway. You find the neatest places.
Gorgeous shots, moon gates are one of my favorite things.
ooh la la. I wouldn't mind having that portal. what a lovely gateway to vivid surprises! happy day to you Barb.
Love that gate! and what a surprise beyond!
Its really a great surprise to see these lilies. What lies beyond is not a secret anymore.Did I tell you my Chinese( 美蓮)name means beautiful lily?
So beautiful. Carol
One of the greatest gifts, - imagination. Beautiful photos, Barb, - the first one draws you in, and the second fills you with delight.
Wow - just gorgeous!
Love the black and white shot. That is a great idea to show the portal in black and white and the "inside" surprises in color.
I love the idea that imagination is a secret garden! I don't think I have ever seen purple water lilies.
In the portal to the secret garden I can picture a child running through it, or a bride looking over her shoulder....wow I love this setting....what a great background for some fabulous picture taking!
This will be a perfect segue into the writing prompt about windows. Lovely.
Beautiful thoughts, beautiful photos, absolutely perfect. And the use of black and white for the portal entering into the bright world is a crowning touch of perfection
And a garden to be nurtured.
Nice entrance gate and beautiful blue lilies in the pond !
Your comments are always one good thing for me!
