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!

Me, too. And a perfect use of the odd shaped banner format. I love photos with lots of interest. Thumbs up

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.
