  1. Interesting photo–it looks like a painting. For some reason, the tree makes me think of the woman with the parasol in “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte.” Not that I’m fanciful, or anything. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Merril. 🙂 Nothing wrong with being fanciful. I love that painting. I’ve seen it at the Art Institute in Chicago, and there is a topiary park in Columbus, Ohio, that is “a landscape of a painting of a landscape,” a topiary interpretation of the painting. You can see pictures of the topiary park here:

      I’ve visited it a few times.

      1. I didn’t know about the topiary! Isn’t that funny that I thought of the painting and there’s a whole park devoted to it? I guess that one painting has inspired a lot of other works, like the musical Sunday in the Park with George.

    1. Thank you, Otto. I value your opinion and your photographer’s eye. 🙂 Someone did just leave it moments before I took it. I had been sitting there resting after doing some gardening, and when I got up and walked away, I realized I’d left my gloves behind. The picture almost asked to be taken when I turned around to go back and retrieve them. 😀

  2. It took a few moments to recognize that there were gloves sitting on that bench. This photo does almost look surreal, peaceful, inviting the viewer to sit for a while on that bench at feel the awe of life.


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
