Walk in the Garden


The old lady thought about the notary public, his long clean shaven face. He had a tidy appearance and comely hands, levigated by disuse – that was her sardonic sense of things. She then looked at her fingers, stained by the ink of the newspaper. A nonpareil feeling mounted as she came upon a page where a photograph, prone to desaturation in such publications, nearly leaped out of its confines. The face to the extreme right was of someone she recognized, yet seen in a different context, identification was troublesome and proffered only effete assurances. The search of her memory seemed to her like a painful jarring of a mechanized shutter, locking in to different locations with the surfeit of a clouded lens. Only the sight of a tropicbird refocused her mind, and she decided to take a walk in the garden under the protean clouds.

  3. A walk in the garden ?? I am intrigued, I want to know the rest of the story !
    I love the geraniums, mine are just coming up ( self seeders from last year) and I have sowed some shorter ones this year as I find the taller ones take over a bit. I might try training them upwards instead of letting them wander.
    I love the wild flower.

  5. Hi Prospero, the Astrophytum asterias flowers are so lovely. The first flower in black and white is this flower too? In any case, the flower look so dramatic in B&W. Good photography. Have a wonderful day!

  7. I am intrigued by the story with the lady from the Peregrina post.

    Love the Trumpet photo - the silvery highlights in the background look like soundwaves coming from the flower-trumpet!

  10. This is another series of really beautiful and lovely flowers. I love nasturtium so I have planted it in my flower pot this year. I noticed yesterday that I got its first flower but in orange color. It is beautiful but that deep red nasturtium on your photo took my breath away. I also have a trumpet; its leaves look beautiful and healthy but I still have been waiting for its lovely flowers. Your asterias flowers also look gorgeous. Thanks for this beautiful walk through your garden under that lovely blue sky. I really enjoyed.
