Little Flags


Several of the plots in the garden were personalized with figurines or statues or little fences. Most of the decorations were nice, but ordinary -- things you could buy at any hardware store for your garden. I loved this decoration, though. These little flags were obviously handmade, hung with bits of string and sticks poking out of the ground. And each flag had a different message. The only unfortunate thing was that the messages were so faded it was difficult to read what most of them said. The exception was the one that you are now looking at. "Breathe". I like that. Very calming; perfect for a quiet garden on a Saturday afternoon.

This is a beautiful shot. Sure, the word is faded, but I think it adds to the charm and beauty of it! Nicely done.
