Tapestries in the Natural World

Grapes and Elderberries at the Village Green Resort - Fall

I've always been fascinated with little "Tapestries" that are created in nature. I envision these wonderful little vignettes woven into a blanket that I can crawl under to hibernate. Here are a few tapestries that Mother Nature has woven.

Boston Ivy on Marble Wall - The Getty Garden - Winter


Rock Wall at Great Dixter - Summer


Ajuga and Bellis - The Village Green Resort - Spring


Gravestone at Stourhead - Summer


Violas and Sempervivums at The Village Green Resort - Spring

What a wonderful post, indeed! I love the natural tapestries far more than those created by human hands. Lovely and original photos, Cindee. Nicely done.

These are fantastic! i always enjoy tapestries in the garden,too. I love the way colors and textures interweave to create natural artwork, if we will stop to notice.

Hi Cindee~~ I love these photos especially because they require that closer look. The kind that forces you to slow your pace to a meander. All garden strolling should fare so well.
