Artwork, Trees, Clouds, Sonnenberg’s Italian Garden

I spent my day inside going through the OHA Artwork collections database – which to me is fun because I’m updating the database with missing biographies which I’m researching/writing and taking photos of the artwork.  So I don’t have much to report in the way of nature.
However, I did notice that some of the trees on my drive keep turning more colorful. And the clouds were funky as all get out (how do you like that for a technical description)? Well, there were flat ones mixed with puffy ones mixed with ones that looked like there was a big fire across the landscape because they were low and black. Really very strange and spooky.

Now, let’s see what I can round up for a nature photo. You know, I have a ton of postings I want to make – it’s just a matter of sitting down and putting together the photos and coming up with the information. Ah, here this is a photo I took of the Italian Garden at Sonnenberg Gardens, from the balcony of the mansion, back on Aug 2, 2004.

It’s the right half of a photo I stitched together, the result of which I haven’t uploaded on Flickr yet.  I’ll fix this one in Photoshop tomorrow to make it web friendly.  It’s past my bedtime now!

    I’m noticing little snippets of color in the trees too, and the greens are becoming more yellow tinted. MMMM fall!! Welcome!! 🙂

    Ohh, I agree, I love fall, too. After spring and summer that is, if I have to give up summer, then fall isn’t a bad option. I just don’t like what follows after that. . .

    I love that garden…it’s a far cry from what I have, though. We like messy.
    But that grass looks like you could roll naked in it!

    I love the garden, too, but it is a little too perfect for me, too. I like the cottage garden look. Plant the seeds and let ’em grow.
    Rolling around naked in grass would be great (sans chemicals)!
