Nature Merlin's Hollow, An English Garden in Aurora After the Rain

Merlin’s Hollow, An English Garden in Aurora After the Rain

Another great photo journey on June 13, 2015 through the Merlin’s Hollow, an English garden, a collection of about 2000 flowering species, of course not photographed yet by me. It rained most of the week, heavy showers in fact, thunders and tornado warnings, and it rained the night before leaving shiny rain drops everywhere in the garden, still there when I arrived. Probably still everywhere in Aurora on that day. And there was a bit of locomotion as well when I arrived. I hope Tomlinson’s Oscar the cat was found sound and safe after he was chased away by the fox in the bright early morning; and when people were around. Brave, I say. Oscar wasn’t found yet at the time I left the garden. It was noon.

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.” ~ Alfred Austin

Well, I hope you will enjoy my photo gallery of  these beautiful flowers and greenery as much as I enjoyed photographing them. Nature is amazing. Nature is an amazing artist. And how about the tiny, some bulky, with wings, no wings, critters doing their job in the garden and some may be just passing by.

Merlin’s Hollow has two more openings, rain or shine, Saturday, July 4, and Sunday July 12, 2015. Hope to see you there among a collection of different blooming flowers, just because every visit is a surprise, different colours and different scents, and may be different critters.
