The Gardens

I had intended to write a little essay about the gardens at The Getty Center, but I decided that words would detract from the beauty of the photos and the place.

Oh wow! I bet that maze is absolutely spectacular when it is in full bloom! And I could almost hear that waterfall... just lovely! I can't wait to see more!

Oh my, those photographs are a blast of welcome on a dark, wet day in England.

Sometimes words aren't enough... sometimes an image can say so much. And yours from the Getty dazzle, Willow...Just dazzling! Thank you for sharing more from this fantastic place :o) Happu Day ((HUGS))

Oh, I do love the gardens at the Getty. Every time we go there, we spend at least as much outside as we do inside!

Melanie said...

So pretty and sunny. Love the waterfall steps.

Very nice. I've never visited there. (and should do so)

I googled the Getty and read quite a bit more about it (due to your post).
I love to visit places with gardens and old books.

You might like the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in Pasadena. Lot's of art, books and gardens...and the new Chinese garden is amazing.
