Nature Merlin's Hollow, English Flower Garden Awaken

Merlin’s Hollow, English Flower Garden Awaken

Merlin’s Hollow, the English flower garden – is my annual local destination where I bring almost all of my photographic equipment to photograph nature’s most beautiful flowers. It it also probably the most rewarding local road trip I take twice or three times a year that is just around the corner from my home here in Aurora. The garden is open to public annually, rain or shine, four times a year – once in May, once in June, twice in July. Bonus, it is also open in August during the Aurora Doors Open event. Rain or shine, cold, hot or windy, and hopefully no snow – I go. With different weather conditions, guess what? I get different results. Sometimes flowers are blooming, sometimes they are just opening. Photos full of water drops leave a memory of refreshing rainy day.

English Flower Garden

Have you been here before?” someone would ask me at the gate every time. “Many times,” I reply every time, and then I take off on my garden adventure to find flowery treasures, and an insect or two. It is also good to re-unite with Dierdre and David Tomlinson, the wonderful garden makers and keepers.
