Carol G.'s Garden - the wonderful combination of plants and trees is breathtaking. Rich, healthy, perfectly manicured. All kinds and colors and textures are found here. Her azaleas are legendary and mea culpa for my not getting to this garden sooner when they were in full color. I think an Azalea Special Page for next year is in order. BUT Carol's garden shines every season, even in winter. Her waterfalls and ponds make me want to copy them for my own garden. This is a very lovely and really well designed garden.

"Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.  It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon."
Oscar Wilde  

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church,
I keep it staying at Home -
With a bobolink for a Chorister,
And an Orchard, for a Dome.
Emily Dickenson

How lovely to sit in the swing with a good book listening to the waterfall and the birds. I want this in MY backyard!

"The world's favorite season is the spring. 
All things seem possible in May."
-   Edwin Way Teale

In Celtic tradition, the night of April 30 was thought of as the darkest of the year, when witches flew to frighten, spawning evil throughout the land.  In response, people pounded on kettles, slammed doors, cracked whips, rang church bells and made all the noise they could to scare off the corruption they imagined to be moving on the moist air.  They lit bonfires and torches and witch- proofed their houses with spring boughs.  Such vigils were kept throughout the night until the rising of the May-dawn.
