this image greeted us at the car park of
'the Garden of St. Erth'
where we viewed a garden about to explode
into spring extravagance
Everything was restrained,
held back,
but ready to bloom into a myriad of colours
mid October should be a good time to visit

thought: they are great gardeners, but lousy coffee makers

  1. The textures in this image are incredible-- I guess spring is coming for you and winter is coming for us.

  2. oh how i love spring. the promise. everything new. new starts. and color color color everywhere. i will live your spring vicariously through your blog as we are entering autumn. autumn is not a promise. autumn portends. lovely post, thank you, Petrus.
