Wednesday Vignette: Life will go on

Shock. Disbelief. Anger. Frustration.

There’s no panacea, but one thing I do know: Life will go on. Always has, always will.

Right now, I’m choosing to focus on things that make me feel better. Like this vignette I photographed last Saturday at the Ruth Bancroft Garden.

Succulents and fall color, not something I see often.

    1. What would I do without gardening? It's my main stress reliever. I think I would go nuts.

  2. It's a beautiful image and focusing on what's beautiful, positive and actionable is particularly important now.

  4. Beautiful. Thank you. We are lucky to have the comfort of the garden.

    What is the beautiful red foliage in the background? I recognize the berries of Toyon, in front of the red foliage.

    1. I don't even know. It's from the trees outside the wall along Bancroft Road.

  6. I am still stunned. I felt sick to my stomach at first but now I am just dazed. What a week.

    Thank you for a gorgeous picture. Do you know what makes up the silvery "wall" at center left of the photo?

    Thank you again for giving us something really lovely and colorful to contemplate.

    1. At least nobody can take the beauty of our gardens and natural spaces away!
