This photograph, taken in the Powerscourt Gardens (Ireland) in July 2008, is my current favourite of all the photos that i have.
The water lilies in this picture are rather Monet-isque, methinks.

Here are some links to one of my absolutely favourite artists, Claude Monet and his water lilies. The site has most beautiful links to further explore this genius of a painter.

I wrote these lines summer last year about this picture:
It is the final showtime, showdown
for the flowers and plants
before the onset of autumn…
Nostalgic? Yes, very much so.
I am looking forward to autumn
but tis the winter, the winter,
that chills me right down to me blonde bones
and even blonder marrow!!
Hydrangea flowers tinged with yellow and pink, looking like
the most intricate lace, methinks.
Have a super weekend. Take great care of your great selves. 🙂
The photo is totally untouched, so tis as it was…
