Since most of the flowers and plants in my yard are not blogworthy due to the lack of rain and brutal heat that has been inflicted upon them going on three months now, I chose to take a few pictures of the grounds at my office. There we have a professional landscaping crew who nurture them and manage to keep them alive despite the weather conditions.
My favorite spot is a secret garden nestled between two buildings. When the weather is pleasant, I love to go to there on my lunch break and read.
Beyond the arbor is the entrance to the secluded secret garden.
My favorite place to sit and read and reflect is on the swing to the right of the fountain where the only sound I hear is the soothing trickling of the water.
Knock out roses are in abundance in the secret garden.
My only companions in the secret garden are butterflies and squirrels. The squirrels refused to pose for me.
Alas, the clock is about to strike one which means my lunch hour is over and I must leave the secret garden and return to the reality of the office where there are no butterflies, just pests.
Thanks for visiting today and joining me in the secret garden.
