The Botanical Garden in May
A Dash along its Paths before the Rain


A View of the Upper Belevere Palace
from the Botanical Garden

In late May,
the garden shines

in all shades of green
imaginable,

spring flowers
give way to early summer blooms

and the potting shed
is once again covered
by the green leaves of wisteria

  9. It is so wonderful to read how you too like this little piece of paradise!

    I tried to answer under each comment, but Blogger seems to have a malfunction this morning, "eating" every single reply I tried to post.

    A wonderful day to all of you, and thank you for taking the time to communicate here with all of us. I appreciate it immensely!

    Yours,
    Merisi
