Stone pathway through a pond in the Japanese Garden section of Butchart Gardens. In March, I took a photo of the same stones, from the opposite direction. The light here is warmer, brighter, and the foliage more lush. Oh the difference 6 weeks makes.
A thick (very thick) cedar hedge borders one edge of the Japanese garden, sheltering it from the water. Someone had the brilliant idea of cutting a small window through the hedge for a glimpse of the cove beyond.
In this photo I have the camera almost through the hedge. Isn't that a beautiful view? I love the whimsy in this idea. The sound of that word just makes me smile.
Whimsy: "Playfully quaint or fanciful behavior or humor."
I love a touch of whimsy and think I need to incorporate some in my own garden. Do you have anything whimsical in your yard?
