Floral Bliss #39

Today I'm participating in Riitta's Floral Bliss link-up and sharing a walk around the courtyard gardens of our local abbey during high Summer.  We often go to the abbey and I've taken photos and shared on other occasions.  However, it's interesting to see what's growing during a different season as well as appreciate the backdrop and peaceful atmosphere of the abbey itself.

Wishing everyone well wherever you are,

  14. Just beautiful Linda, I love the stone and those arching windows, and the pomegranate, I'd have a hard time not picking them.xxx

  15. The abbey is quite lovely, especially with all the flowers in bloom. I have rarely seen pomegranates in bloom, but love seeing them at our Chinese Gardens. What a treat! Oleander grows quite profusely along the highways in California. The coral tree plant is gorgeous! I don't think I have ever seen one of those. Thanks for sharing the beauty of the abbey.
