FOG TODAY 9.7.16

Here is a quick look at the gardens this morning.  Hard to believe that just beyond the gardens is Lake Michigan.  It is nowhere to be found!

 

Fog for me always sets a meditative / reflective mood – nice.  A quiet, even silent sense of peace.

 






The one happy plant this morning giving everything it has in joy of this foggy day is this one and only single bloom today of the Morning Glory.

 

Enjoy your day.

Review of August 2016

15 never seen pics of August 2016
Sunrise August 21, 2016

Here are fifteen, never before seen, photos taken at the Gardens at Waters East during the month of August 2016.  There are so many that could be included in this posting.  It was difficult to limit this posting to these few.  This is a "sampling" of what was blooming during the month.  All are reminders of this time of year – moving from the hot days of summer and now going into the cooler evenings of autumn.  After this month the real transition begins.
Enjoy the review of August
