Reynolda Gardens

I mentioned in my previous post about Reynolda Village, that I would take some pictures*** in the Gardens. If you are looking for a good place to decompress, this is it.

My Garden
By Emily Dickinson

New feet within my garden go,

New fingers stir the sod;

A troubadour upon the elm

Betrays the solitude.

New children play upon the green,

New weary sleep below;

And still the pensive spring returns,

And still the punctual snow!

***I need to mention that I had to get special permission to take these and was only able to acquire it due to the fact that I am a tenant and I was taking pictures to be used in an ad - this opportunity is not open to everyone, although ignored by some, photography in the gardens is generally prohibited for commercial use***.

If you do decide to visit, please stop by my wife's new shop Karen Gray Design.
