Garden of Beauty

Al Ain ,also known as the Garden City,  is in  United Arab Emirates. I had no idea of the hanging gardens there until I received an email today. The following photos are courtesy of the Internet. Man combined with nature shows the floral colour and beauty to its very best.

The baskets are filled with plants and the gardens recently re-opened after some vandalism forced them to close.
Quotation of the day from John Milton, 1608-1674

Beauty is Nature's brag, and must be shown
In courts, at feasts, and high solemnities
Where most may wonder at the workmanship

Cheers from Jean
