with my hands in my pockets

Gardens are poems
Where you stroll with your hands in your pockets.

  1. Some day if I’m very, very lucky (and I work hard), I’ll have a garden half as gorgeous as this! These are all so very beautiful. And great quote to go with…

  2. These photos!! Glorious and uplifting. Can’t get enough of them!

  3. What a beautiful garden! And great shots! But you didn’t walk with your hands in your pockets 😉

    • Ha, it probably pops to us because we have been exploring life in black and white all month! Thanks, Cathy. 🙂

  4. Bach’s Ave Maria is playing in the background as I stroll through these photos, giving me goosebumps visually, auditorially, and spiritually. Thank you!

  5. P.S. Your photos remind me of my writing- we catch a glimpse of something beautiful – a flower, a glance, a window – and catch it into our camera or writing lens: add a bit of glimmer, a ghost of shadow, allowing the background to sink into fuzziness while focusing on the sharp beauty; thus, we highlight the romance of life.

  6. I loved my walk through your garden. So many beautiful flowers and so much happy bokeh…thanks for sharing…

  7. absolutely gorgeous and I love his statement – so true. I especially adore your photo of the hydrangea and the black eyed susans 🙂 And such a creamy yellow daylily.

  8. How beautifully you see and capture the late summer music of flowers, those warm colors and low-angled light, so nostalgic.

  9. Gardens are indeed poems! I love the peacefulness of that first capture and the last one captures my heart!
