Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Almost Wordless Wednesday - Japanese Lanterns


I have always been enamored with Japanese lanterns.  I have one small one that I bring out each Spring and put into a new spot depending upon my whim that year.  When Fall comes I put it away because I'm afraid the cold weather will make it crumble.  This year the lantern is nestled amongst the ferns, heucheras and hostas in the glen garden. And as the season progresses it blends more and more into its surroundings.
 

 But my lantern is miniscule compared to these I spied in the Japanese Garden at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Canada.
