Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge has the theme of nature; this week the topic is gardens.
Partial view of my garden in late July – there may be a butterfly in there somewhere…
In my neighborhood, kind of hidden, is this lovely pond and landscaped garden.
In front of the main building at Chicago Botanic Gardens, which is not far from…
…Ravinia, a famous and lovely summer outdoor concert venue north of Chicago.
Herb garden on Viking Gefjon (European river cruise ship) – the chefs do use the herbs grown here in preparing the delicious meals on board!
In Cologne, Germany – the sculpture has a story about it, but I can’t remember it…something about elves maybe?
Behind the luxurious 17th century Bishop’s residence in Bamberg, Germany, is this rose garden.
Here is the garden of someone who enjoys flowers but has no green space. Surround oneself with flower pots while enjoying a warm day on the patio. There’s plenty of room for neighbors and friends! (Melk, Austria)
Finally, the sumptuous and vast gardens of Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria (this is only a small fraction of those gardens).
