The Broad Crown of the forest giant stretched into the sky,
Mingling with Sunlight, Cerulean and diffuse Emerald shadow,
Inviting, Enchanting, Calling….
The tower stood guard,
seeking the face of enemy and friend alike,
the first line of defense and the final battleground,
but the ancient stones had also seen secret loves shared,
heard the echoes of children’s laughter,
and tolled the hours of the day for centuries.
sinking behind the growth of bordering wood,
the tower reminisced and was silent.
Silver and bronze,
United in a quiet cote,
Listen in breathless silence
To lyrical birdsong,
And the whispers of travelers
Stooping in its luminous shade.

I spent this past Saturday wandering amid the flora and fauna of the ever beautiful Longwood Gardens, located in South Central Pennsylvania. Even though it was a drizzly and chilly day, it was still exceptionally delightful and I simply had to share some of the sights I/we found there. I wish I could share the scents as well, but alas, SmellOBlog has not been approved for public use just yet. I hope you will enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed discovering them.
This fifth collection is some of the magnificent trees stretching their arms to the sky among the gardens, as well as one of the tree houses (yes thats a Tree House) Mr DuPont built for his grandchildren.
