Silver Lake Garden
Shangri-La is described as a fictional location in the novel, Lost Horizon, written by James Hilton and published in 1933. Mystical and peaceful, this lovely valley is an eternally joyous place, isolated from the chaotic, noisy and disharmonious world outside.
Urban gardens, whether large or small, may not shut out the noisy world outside them. They can, however, shelter us and provide solace from the city.
Each spring, we relish the outbursts from colorful flowering azaleas, wisteria and calla. The season is short, so we constantly watch and record, both visually and technically.
And while each flowering spring seems much the same as the last, we are not tricked into analysis, where feeling is lost to thought. Instead, we wrap ourselves in spring where all is fresh, new - electrically alive.
Enjoy our simple garden. We enjoy sharing it with you.
