Cat on a Red Brick Path
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Cat on a Red Brick Path
Cat on a Red Brick Path

This is another section of the garden I posted yesterday, but on the other side of the house. The path leads from the sidewalk to a gate which opens to a private yard in back where, I'm told, there is yet another garden with trellises and ornamental pools. Haven't seen that part.

The cat has, because he lives there!

I took this in the deep shade. Various effects applied.

    Hi neighbour. This is another beauty. This garden sounds like the garden I would love to have.

Thanks, Paul! The house is a large Victorian and is on the yearly Walking Tour of Gardens in Savanna. The owner lives there alone from what I know, and does all the gardening himself. In spring and fall, it does have a wild, English-garden look about it. Not commercial landscape, by any means! It is old and well established: many peonies, roses, hostas and azaleas - lots of asters and dahlias in the fall. I hope to show the rest!

I just realized, the winners are announced so Congrats to All who won for March!

I was wondering when I'd see a cat since a little bird told me you had so many. But this isn't even one of yours. This cat sure has a beautiful home that you've photographed so lovely. The colors and lighting are just excellent. Wonderful capture, my good friend.
