Bosco Sacro Gardens


If I had to spend the rest of my days in one place I'd probably choose a sculpture garden like the Bosco Sacro Gardens in Italy.

the sacred grove or grove of monsters

subtle nuances of change would permeate my minds eye

light would fall different each day

moss might be thinner or thicker or brighter

rocks more worn and weathered

I'd stroll with much thought and contemplation

the world outside would no longer matter

I'd rest at night with great calm

dreaming of strange creatures, of beauty and wonder and gods

I'd become one with nature around me.

If you had to spend your time in one place where would you choose?  Images borrowed from the net. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. What a lovely virtual visit!
    Toes crossed that the house move is progressing well!

  2. Those pictures are beautiful, they remind me of Bobolli Gardens in Florence, IT.

    I think I'm too nomadic to spend my life in any one place but if my potter's wheel and some clay where there...

  3. How I love Italy. The art, architecture and history. I took students to Europe several time before I retired and Italy/Greece was my favorite trip. As to a place well being what I love most to do a mountain trout stream in Montana would be just about right...:)

  4. Beautiful place... makes you feel that time has stood still there. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  5. I would have a hard time choosing one place. Like Lori said, where there is clay and a potters wheel, I could be happy...

  6. What an amazing place. It would be a garden I am almost sure. Perhaps I could become a tree... Wandering off thinking about it.

  7. very poetic and I can see how this garden would be a place for reminds me of your artistic taste.

  8. That is really a type of garden I appreaciate and love as a photographer as well. Beautiful and enchanted location! Thanks for sharing your pictures,


  9. Hi Suzi, thanks, things are moving along although slowly.

    Hi Lori, thanks, oh I am sure I could find some clay in that garden too. Ha.

    Hi Troutbirder, thanks, I guess I am traveling virtually via these photos. so much history combined with the elements of nature

    Hi Rian, thanks, I happened to see one photo and delved further to find out about the lovely gardens.

    Hi Michele, thanks, yes a little clay to work with in the garden would be just about perfect.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, don't gardens just command our thoughts and inspiration for the day, I'd love to be walking there right now.

    Hi Dee, thanks, nature does inspire me almost every day, can't wait to get back to clay on a more regular basis.

    Hi Uwe, thanks, the photos were borrowed from the net but inspiring non the less.
