Friday I was making a pilgrimage out West and took a favorite scenic route to make the drive more interesting. Along the way I came upon, what I now call, "The Enchanted Garden". Here is a comprehensive view from the road:
|The "Enchanted Garden" - view one|
|As you see, a lot of 'green' space with vignettes of interest deep in the property|
|What a GRAND entrance, don't you think?|
|Zoom in (double click on the photo)! Note some details closer to the home|
I felt a bit guilty and awkward as I took the 5 minutes to photograph this magical place. It seemed voyeuristic and a tad invasive to be standing on the edge of the road, 'ogling' someone's work. I wish I knew more of the garden designer that created this enchanted place. I'll "Google" it - and see if there is local info on it, see if there is a local garden club that is doing a 'garden walk'. Who knows - I may even get bold enough to stop by on a Saturday afternoon? Anyone who paints their front door purple can't be too scary, right?!
So - if you haven't thought of it before, bring that point n' shoot pocket camera with you. Take advantage of that "smart" technology. Take the road less traveled, "It makes all the difference."
