In my Garden



Little eerie kingdoms of beauty grace the shadows. I dream of being ant sized, about to walk through an enchanted forest,



gather fragrant pearls splattered on gowns of chlorophyll,



or hide unknown under a mallard’s wing and contemplate the world from the perspective of the spring sky.



Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!

Beautiful pics and the description.

Having that "Honey, I shrunk the kids" feeling don't you? :D

Geraldine said...

Oh what pretty pics! Love the lilacs most of all; they haven't bloomed here in BC yet. Your first pic reminds me a bit of my current "Shades of Blue" haiku. Hope you stop by soon Vesper and I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, G

Thanks for sharing those amazing photos. Violets, Lily of the Valley, Mallard, and those gorgeous French Lilacs. I have the same flowers blooming in my yard right now...er...plus one duck - yup, got that too.

Hope your weekend is spectacular.

Forgive me...I was doing fine, seeing myself as a cricket walking around in the world under the leaves, then I got to the Mallard and Wham! ummm, yum! Turduckin.

Lovely photos, Vesper. Makes me wish summer and all its heat won't come yet.

Vesper said...

Thank you, LW! :-)

I’m glad you liked it, Charles. Thank you! :-)

Karen, thank you! :-)

Thanks, Aniket! Yeah, sort of… When I noticed all the violets underneath the raspberry bushes, I immediately thought of the forest of fossilised mushrooms from Jules Verne’s “Journey to the Centre of the Earth”. :-)

Thank you, Geraldine. You have a lot of splendid flowers – how come the lilacs are late? :-) *hugs*

Thank you, Bernard. :-)

I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, Kaye, and that we share these little treasures… ;-)

Thank you, Cat! Yes, it’s finally spring… Can you hear my sigh of relief?... :-)

Ah, Mark, but an ant can hide better than a cricket. :-) ;-)

Thank you, Little Girl Lost! Certainly, it would be very scary… :-)

L.A., I’m glad you liked the photos. Our summer is too short… Come and gone in the blink of an eye… :-)

I dream such dreams all the time! to live among the fairies or fly with the birds. I'd love to see from other perspectives!
