Such beautiful stonework must have taken a long time to create. It makes the grounds look so elegant.

you have a great eye for the composition, the first image is very apealing to the eye.

I enjoy your simple but stunning images

Cheers

Those wonderful steps took a long time, a lot of patience and talent and of course thousands of pieces!

I was trying to figure out these photos...they seem to be somewhat mysterious...but, aha! I think I see a pattern here! ;-)

Very nice cobblestones. Unlike any I've seen in this country. I'll bet that botanical garden is wonderful!

Re your question on Florida: I'm pretty sure those birds are American white ibis.

Hope you have a good week!

Seems more like a mosaic than cobble stones.
