Water in the Garden

“Water is the driver of nature”. (Leonardo DaVinci) Imagine a place where you can kick back in your hammock, listening to the soothing bubbling of water caressing the smooth rocks of a gurgling brook. The gentle sound of a waterfall or a cascade of water over an urn gives a sense of healing, relieving the daily stress of the day and is most relaxing. You notice the lush vegetation all around; pick up on the different textures and colors of foliage and flowers peeking out here and there.

Which, by the way, are quite different from those just across the Chesapeake Bay in other parts of the state. We’ll address that in a later issue.
