We're definitely into July; hot and humid! So humid my glasses fog over every time I step outside. We did receive a small amount of rain this afternoon. Much needed rain I might add, although it made it even more humid!
The rain made me think of how refreshing water is to my plants and lawn.
Which made me think about how hot my sister and I were when we visited Garven Gardens and how we kept splashing our hands in the waterfalls to cool off our faces.
Which made me think, I've never shown you those pictures.
When you're hot there's nothing like following a pathway that leads to a shadowed pool of cool water. This pool is at the top of the waterfall below.
I could sit all day and listen to the sound that is created as the water splashes down the rocks.
I liked the contrast here between the soft pink flowers on one side and the hard rocks on the other. Do you think the large rock on the right looks like it has a giant spider embossed on it? Kind of gives me the creeps!
This was the tallest waterfall. Sorry about the bright sun, but it was mid-day. As I was walking down a rock stairway to get a better picture of the waterfall, I almost stepped on a snake which was slithering across the step below me. Gave me the shivers!! I have to keep reminding myself when I go to gardens that snakes like gardens, too; especially gardens that are natural like this one which is on a peninsula on Lake Hamilton.
I guess I was into seeing things in the rocks, but I thought this looked like a giant turtle hiding away in his shell. I say giant because it was a very large rock, probably 7 or 8 feet from end to end.
In the children's section of the park they made a cave out of huge rocks. They've made a little area that looks like a fire pit inside and left small openings between the rocks for light. It would be such a fun place to play in! This delightful waterfall was cascading down one side of the cave opening. Delightful, yes, because my sister and I both stuck our hands in the water and splashed ourselves to cool off!
Well, it may be hot outside, but I feel cooler just looking at all this cool water!
I hope it cooled you off too!!
