Waterside Plants, After Monet

I visited wonderful botanical gardens in Maine a couple of years ago, but for some reason never had the time to edit the photographs. This is one that I particularly liked as the tones and colours and softness reminded me of a painting. It brings back memories of balmy, sunny, long summer days, with bees and butterflies flitting among the beautiful flowers.

The year of weekly projects is drawing to a close and I have to say it was not one that worked well for me. I have missed several themes – perhaps because I do not want to be given themes, but prefer to come up with them myself. For 2014 I am going to once again participate in the +G+ 365 Project curated by +Simon Davis-Oakley  +Patricia dos Santos Paton and +James Cockroft, beginning on January 1. I am looking forward to starting this!
