Healing Garden

Another set of images taken by my son Brian, these are of the Healing Garden at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix:







“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more” ~John Burroughs (1837-1921) American naturalist and writer

What a gorgeous place, Diane. I'll bet alot of people enjoy visiting that garden when they are at the Medical Center. And --it does seem to have a healing effect.

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a beautiful place for patients to spend time.

The building design is pretty impressive. I like those roundish windows. Also that planter so cute. Looks like a big jelly mould.

Wouldn't the world be a better place if we had more of these?

I LOVE the hummingbird. What a shot! Can you imagine? I will have to show this one to my husband - he is always trying to get hummingbirds on camera and has never yet succeeded. Wonderful!

Hi Diane,
Thank you for your nice comment on my son's photos from Italy.

Seeing again your beautiful photos, love specially the hummingbird's picture! I think that is very difficult to photograph birds, because they don't still...

I wish you and yours, a Merry Christmas!

Amin said...

Nice!
