The photo challenge on A Word in Your Ear this week really fits with my personal quest of making a conscious effort to look for beauty this week. http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/a-word-a-week-challenge-garden/
When I was in southern Spain last year I wandered round in a daze transported by the beauty of the gardens.
Whether it is the subtle, romance of gentle lilacs and greys contrasted with lime greens and bright yellows
in southern Spain the entire world becomes a garden.
