“A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.” ~ Washington Irving
The botanical garden is full of fountains, small ponds, a good sized lake and a meandering waterway that allows for quiet boat tours of the garden. This little fellow is tucked away in a section with a wide variety of evergreen, flowering trees and niches that pop up revealing statues of wildlife that inhabit the area of the gardens. I love the paths that wind and cross and on days when the garden is less populated by visitors, one can almost become lost in this world of nature with nothing but the sound of chirping birds and crickets, buzzing bees and the gurgling of water. Oh yes, occasionally the scream of the bald eagle family that currently nests in the tall loblolly pines. I have been to the gardens once this spring and plan another mid-week trip soon... almost time for the roses...
I thought this fellow would do nicely for both Moody Monday and Watery Wednesday.
Oh, yes... and since frogs are a favorite of Judy's... this frog is especially for her too.
