Bigger yard 33.....


The great thing about oriental gardens is that they are so consciously designed thematically, even as they impart a sense of the world-aside in their naturalness...  in my terracing these gardens, am thus able to sectionalize them, too, allowing for a shifting of emphasis when going from one to another garden - sort of as if a 'garden for every mood and need' ...  at least that is the idea...

And with this, all the coloring is up to the rest of the rendering...  now - on to the terraced gardens...

The operation was a success, and I am back home, so if healing goes well, will in a few days be back to work on this...

It has been a bit of work getting this section down, as my upcoming hip replacement operation has been much on my mind, along with all the attending factors involved with it.... but have managed this much of the far shore of the canyon vista... 


the next section will be on the right, covering a number of gardens terracing the slopes...  and being topped by an 'eagle' house overlooking it all...
