Today's Flowers: Reflection, Remembrance

harkness memorial

harkness memoriall


Here are a few shots from Harkness Memorial Park. I warm up and remember summer when I look at these photos. The top photo is an image of trees reflected on the windows of the dining room of the mansion, the ceiling of which is painted with foliage representing the four seasons. The bottom is the boxwood garden, one in a network of gardens surrounding this fabulous place .Walk around the boxwoods to the koi fountain, make your wish, turn around, and there is the Atlantic as it quietly pulses between Connecticut and Long Island. Dreams come true. Breathe deep and know it.

  1. The first picture looks like lace. I'd be happy to sit and read in the garden of the second picture.

  14. I agree. Dreams do come true in ways we might not expect it to. And in places we least expect to.
