I thought about how soft and dreamy this Chrysanthemum is with its pink, peach and ivory tones.

I decided that if I was creating the garden for Cloud Nine, this would definitely be there. As a Chrysanthemum, it should be in the Autumn Garden, but as I’m designing it and it is Cloud Nine, I would have it part of the spring garden.

Also, it occurred to me that the flowers would be this close to you on Cloud Nine and ever so softly focused.

What a dreamy place would be the Garden on Cloud Nine.

From Wikidictionary:

cloud nine (uncountable)
(idiomatic) a state of happiness, elation or bliss; often used in the phrase on cloud nine.

    Oh, so so pretty! Love the limited focus and the dreamy look of the whole image!

  • This Cloud Nine garden is the opposite of mine right now – all brown, falling over, and wrinkled up! A great antidote this was!
