Awesome, Dirt! What are the blue things back there? At first I thought they were wine bottles (like Blue Moon) and it was Tim's garden, lol!

What a scenic panorama! Very nice... Lovey dubby
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Incredible banner Dirt!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I like the contrast of the rocks & plants.
Any closeups of the "semps"?

Dirt... Absolutely a great pic with lots of plants and a very interesting grouping, light is very nice. So much to see in such a tiny space. Lovely rock garden. I tip my hat to you.

That could be a great book cover!πŸ‘

Dirt's banners always leave me with a challenge to describe them. It is like looking at a piece of artwork and then returning time after time to enjoy them. This one has me using words like "serenity", "simplicity", "peaceful" and "to the point". I didn't see this last night, but only saw it today, so it is taking me a little longer to absorb its beautiful form and quality. I don't like to use a lot of fancy words to describe something. However I think it needs to be enjoyed like eating your favorite foods such as strawberry ice cream on a hot July day. The same can be said of Dirt's "Roses" banner on August 24, 2019.
