There is a magical place in our big city where fairies dance
and turtles have a place to lounge around.
The Jardim Botanico is a beautiful garden set amidst the roar of traffic and horns; a quiet babbling stream with tall Palm trees lining the street and paths brings comfort to the soul.
There are some places inside the garden that look mystical,
enchanting...with their fountains and statues guarding their
treasures. Look at the trunks of these trees...they are massive with a root system that must span the ground under our feet.
There are some sections that need a little more TLC, but as a whole, the tranquil Gardens are a nice respite from the craziness that lies outside it's gates.
Enjoy the beauty of the flowers....
wonder at the arches and curves of the trees and leaves...
may your day be filled with the peacefulness that our souls call for.
I will return after the weekend with more pictures and comments. We are off to another destination here in Brazil. Have a beautiful weekend!
