Mid-June

‘Pond Reflections’ A beautiful stroll amid the Italian Gardens gives way to the beauty of the flora, the clouds, the water and the trees reflections; A cloudy day turns the pond into a land of mystery and invites one to look a little closer; at nature?’ at ones self? at beauty in all it’s forms?; […]

Late September, Gratitude and an amazing Flower
