Garden Wall

 

There is a place at the Desert Botanical Garden that is located way back in a corner and between to administration buildings.  I used to sit there every now and then and enjoy the peace and quiet even on busy days.  Because its location is sort of cut off from the normal paths, it's usually very quiet.  That is where this little shelf built into a wall is located.  I've always found it to be very pleasing to the eye and because of that, I've taken quite a few photos of this wall.  This one is from 2018.

This one was taken in 2019.  As you can see, the position of the buckets and watering cans changes from time to time but it's always attractive to me.



On this occasion in 2015, I took a couple of close-up shots.  I liked the look of those pink geraniums.  

This quiet little spot has been closed to the public ever since the spring of 2020 when things were closing down due to the pandemic.  They probably closed this area because it was so small and too many people in there at once could be a problem.  

When I was at the garden last Friday, I noticed it was still closed but something was happening in there.  I'll show you what I saw tomorrow.

It's a crazy world out there and sometimes we need peace and quiet.

You are better at finding quiet spots than I am. I like yours.
