Water Fall
Sweet Smell of Outdoors

Arching Trees
Bending Downward
Smell of Grass

Green plants & Flowers everywhere. 
Follow me home, you will find none there.
As I sat on the bench in the shade, looking across the lawn at the beautiful water fountain, I feel as if I am floating on a crystal mountain.
Coming back to reality.
I realize in order to have a garden like this, Somebody must help me!

Fragrant and colorful
Lovely to behold
Our link to nature
Worlds to unfold
Eternal and everlasting
Rare and mysterious
