Garden photos that bring me joy

Gardens can bring such joy and serenity to one's heart. This is what being in gardens or even seeing photos can sometimes do for me. There is just something soothing and happy about images found in nature. While this is true of many things in life, this gallery is to celebrate some images of places, gardens, and flowers that brought a smile to my face. I hope it brings you some joy too, or peacefulness or serenity. You can click on the images to see them a bit larger if you like.

Photos of Gardens, Nature and Flowers

Photo 1 - This beautiful serene pond area is facing a dock and garden on the other side. Its something that I look at and really enjoy.

Photos 2 & 6 - These are both irises, and I just love their frilly petals and beauty and colors. Its hard to believe that nature just puts so much effort and creativity into her creations yet we see it. Number 2 has some white, pink and lavender, and Number 7 has a golden yellow and a deep crimson or burgundy color.

Photo 3 - I absolutely love this area with filtered sunshine, Japanese maple shrubs, running water, and huge tall trees. I could be here all day, it would be like a mini vacation, if I had a hammock. Or just a great way to spend a vacation at least in part!

Photo 4 - A macro shot of a thin petaled yellow cone flower. There is just something happy and unique about the flower.

Photo 5 - A little bubbling brook, going under the cutest little bridge you ever saw. This is in the woods, and its a lovely little place that brings a smile to my face.

Photo 6 - see above in number two description.

Photo 7 - A nice pathway through the woods. This path is made of large stones or slabs of stones. There is something about it that draws me in.

Photo 8 - This one is a favorite for sure. It is as if this hibiscus (which is taller than me!) is reaching up to the heavens for some extra sunshine. I absolutely love everything about this flower. Perhaps its the shape, or the color up against the blue sky. Regardless its something that I really love.

Photo 9 - A close up of some pink begonia flowers. There is a pearl sheen on the petals if you can get close enough to see it. To me, the simplicity, color, light shining through and the pearly sheen just makes me wonder at the beauty of nature.

Photo 10 - A favorite garden scene done by some master gardeners at the Missouri Botanical Garden. I don't see why any of us couldn't do something similar within the scale of our own gardens or a portion of them. Anyway, the beauty and architecture surrounding this garden is wonderful, in my opinion.

Photo 11 - Fountain, trees and sky in the Ottoman garden. Wouldn't this make a lovely courtyard, at my house? All kidding aside, I absolutely love the happiness and serenity that a place like this provides. What is even more amazing, is that there aren't realy that many blooming flowers here and it still is so very lovely.

Photo 12 - This is just a pathway taking you into a colorful flower garden. That alone, can make my day any day! That is my cup of tea for sure.

Photo 13 - This is a seemingly perfect bright pink dahlia to me. I kid you not, its like there is sunshine emanating out of this flower, if that were possible. The brightness and cheerfulness that a single bloom can bring is quite powerful really.

Photo 14 - There isn't anything about this bright flowering zinnia garden that doesn't make me smile inside and out. There is just so much color, all from nature and its just astounding. The bees, butterflies, moths and birds that come here have the right idea I am thinking!

"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous." Aristotle
