Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows, 6

Not much of a window, maybe?

But it’s an opening in a wall, with a removable covering, so it qualifies. There’s a fine barrel cactus and some rocks in the desert sand of the “garden” overlooked by the window, and the austerity of the ensemble– so suitable to the landscape — is very pleasing to my eye. Is it to yours, or do you prefer your gardens more lush, your windows more transparent????

    I like the way you show what you love in such a charming light. I love the shuttered window, it’s mystery, it’s suggestion of seclusion, but I’m more a greenery and blossom sort of girl, preferring that my gardens be seed scattered and abundant. Rooms can be austere but I want my gardens full of color, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      And so they are, your gardens! Wonderful specimens of cottage gardens — with multitudes of flowers and a whole range of colors. I love your gardens, I love looking at them.
      But as you so shrewdly observe — my own taste is the austerity of a desert garden, a Japanese garden, a Chinese Scholar’s garden, and even that latter sometimes has more color and abundance than suits me!
      This post could be a kind of Rorschach test!

    I love any garden particular to the space it occupies and this has so much happening in the way of shape, form and texture – verticals, horizontals, spherical, which all add up to being so pleasing to my eye! Any garden I have ever had belongs in the category known as “messy!”

    I understand the charm of the image; and it does make for a novel picture, but if it were my daily view, I think I might get depressed.
