And the color of spring thus far seems to be yellow.
I always make my way down the street to this water garden. I love it for two reasons. It is so close that I can walk there in a minute from my backdoor. Isn't that a treat? Also, what you cannot tell from these pictures is the garden is on the side yard, facing the street. The beautiful house, a Hyde Park beauty, sits atop a hill and I am pretty sure the owners cannot see the water feature from their house. It would appear they built this garden for the love of water gardens and to create a bit of beauty for us to enjoy as we pass by.
This is a favorite destination for Jack, my three-year old nephew, when he visits grandma and grandpa who live across the street from me.
The skies were turning grey and rumbles of thunder were intensifying. A sane person would head home but I just had to see what was around the corner. So glad I did! Magnolias in bloom- what could be better? After taking a few pictures common sense kicked in and I decided to make my way back home.
The gardens surrounding the condos where I live are beautifully planted and maintained by a resident. This nodding beauty is just outside my door on the way to the courtyard garden.
