Retreat


Isn't this a tempting spot?

I was tempted to put down my camera, take a seat amid the roses and enjoy the view of the river and the bridge. Had a cup of coffee and a newspaper been handed to me, I would have!

Two years ago, the terrace looked like this.

Oh, yes! It's a perfect spot for reading, relaxing, and reflection. You photographed it beautfully.

It does look like a nice place to stop. Not sure how long I'd want to sit on that bench though. I think I'd need a cushion in addition to the coffee and newspaper!

That would be the perfect spot to sit and visit with a friend.

Thanks, bfarr. I posted another spring view two years ago and just added the link. The trees have really grown!

Aren't our roses wonderful right now? I must get to the Botanical Gardens soon and catch theirs.
