Garden

These photos were taken at the Botanical Garden in Ooty



The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
~Dorothy Frances Gurney, "Garden Thoughts"

  10. Looks great: I love gardens that are a bit wild: they attract lots of butterflies and other insects and give animals like hedgehogs al savehaven.
