Wherever you go, take memories with you




View thru study window at Eliz. Lawrence garden

Wherever you go, take the memories of a beautiful garden with you.

Remember the flowers and their scents.

Remember the paths and the sound of your footsteps as you walked along them.

Remember the breezes and the birds, and how they filled the garden with a symphony that can never be replayed exactly the same way as it was played for you.

Remember the colors, the blending of floral tones with shades of green.

Remember what the leaves felt like as you touched those that looked so soft.

Remember the hospitality of those who tended that garden, how they welcomed you in, knowing that the memories you took with you would only enhance the garden in the long run, adding to its mystique.

Wherever you go, take the memories of a beautiful garden with you.

  1. So true, Carol. Taking photographs certainly make those memories easier to conjure, too. Love the view from her window.
