A Walk in the Garden . . .

It's warm out this evening, a slight breeze ruffles the air . . .

Let's take a stroll, walk arm-in-arm like in olden days when the rustle of silk matched the song of many blossoms ~




when leisure was something that did not include cellphones and texting . . .




when the art of conversation or dozing under the shade of a tree was enough to satisfy a world-weary soul.



Gardens are still a bit of paradise on earth, for humans, flora and fauna . . . let's cherish them.

Note:  many of my digital alterations owe a debt of gratitude to digital masters Skeletal Mess, Ghostbones, Telzey and Playingwithbrushes on Flickr, who share their textures freely!

I love your poetic musings and the digital images of the flowers. I do miss the innocence and simplicity of my childhood years, but I also enjoy the creative tools of the digital world too!

I like this clause very much.
It seems to express profound of the heart by slight.

Thank you.
