As we continue our mini-tour of Chandor Gardens, walk this way and admire the water feature. Make that water features…streams, ponds, a waterfall–they’re everywhere. I find that when it’s 100+ degrees—like many spots around the country about now—staring dreamily at pictures of water can be very soothing. So consider this post a mini retreat; just a little gift from me to you.
Check out this sweet walkway–do you know what those stepping stones are? They’re millstones! How genius is that? If millstones had opinions, they’d probably enjoy their new life away from all that dusty grain. Such fun to walk across, too. Here’s another look with a view of the awesome arbor that had lush plants hanging from it… And once you get to the middle of said pond you can see the boat! It may not go very fast…or at all…but isn’t it sweet?
I feel cooler just looking at this lovely bridge over the lily pond. It’s so what my spinster friends and I used to call “ro-tic” (that would be “romantic” minus the “man”). And with that, I’ll sign off. I have one more batch of fabulous to share in the next post, but until then, if you find yourself in Weatherford, go visit Chandor Gardens and you can see all this for yourself. I’ll bet that even in the July heat, all that water will make you feel cooler.
