Cat on a Red Brick Path

Uploaded: April 24, 2008 00:16:28


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.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/60 seconds, Flash: fired, auto mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 40.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi

Hi neighbour. This is another beauty. This garden sounds like the garden I would love to have. #907334

Teresa Burnett level-deluxe April 24, 2008

This is marvelous Nadya!! Love the colors and effects!! Would love to have a garden that looked just like this!! (Complete with cat would be nice) #5833247

Nadya Johnson April 24, 2008

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! #5833264

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. #5835289
