Innumerable as the stars of night,
Or stars of morning, dewdrops which the sun
Impearls on every leaf and every flower.
- John Milton
Unzählbar als die Sterne der Nacht,
oder Sterne des Morgens, Tautropfen die, die Sonne,
auf jedem Blatt und jeder Blume perlen lässt.
- John Milton

Walk through our garden..


More beautiful warm and sunny days in November!!
Let's take some pictures before winter arrives with snow and ice.
Nature will bear the closest inspection.
She invites us to lay our eyes level with her smallest leaf,
and take an insects view of its plain.
( Thoreau)
**************
Die Natur erträgt eine genaue Inspektion.
Sie lädt uns ein, auf Augenhöhe mit ihrem kleinsten Blatt zu sein
und mit dem Blick von Insekten die Umgebung zu sehen.

The beautiful Japanese Maple leaves create a mosaic in red and green.

Last leaves of "Leonard Messel" Star Magnolia. A contrast in colour.

A potpourri of leaves and plants.
