    What an eye you have, John, for what creates a beautiful composition! ~ Pat

  • Dear Pat.
    Thanks again.
    This one was taken during another garden tour from Australia.
    Our excellent tour guide (Merryle Johnsonof Country Farm Perennials) takes us to memorable, mostly private, homes and gardens at an unhurried pace so i get plenty of opportunities for photos.

  • Thank you PhotosByG for featuring this image.
    This garden, and its classic statuary, remains as one of my favourite memories of Florence.
