Friday Field Trip: A Secret Garden

Hey, campers! We’re going on our first Slight Detour Field Trip! Today we’re headed to a special place I like to lose myself in from time to time. It’s a place I go to when I need to be reminded that you can find the most amazing surprises just about anywhere if you look closely enough. Here’s a sneak peek at our slight detour.

A glimpse of what's possible

When the puppy next door isn't pushing her nose through the hole, begging for a petting, I can pretend that the pixies who flit through my flower garden perch mid-flight and get silhouetted against the light. – SCROLLWORK


Buns of stone

Work it. – SCROLLWORK


Phoenix post-departure

Art happens. Life moves along whether or not you note the details. A chicken powdered in tandoori leaves an imprint on the pan. Not quite the Shroud of Turin, but somewhat esoteric. Life moves along. Except for the chicken. - SCROLLWORK

What are you waiting for? Follow the red umbrella and we’re off!

Special thanks to SCROLLWORK for sharing her lovely world with us!

I've been a fan of Scrollwork's photography for a while now, so I'm glad your red umbrella is showing the way to others, too.

You rock! I am constantly amazed by the creative ideas that spring from you. I am deeply honored by the field trip you chose to bring to my Secret Garden on flickr.

Love those photos, Sam. Nature is always a great place to go and just focus yourself.
I've got a place just like that. Alas....its under about two feet of snow right now. :/

Ernesto - I love Spain and would love a chance to visit your country again!
C.M. - Thank you! Happy to know that you have a place to retreat to as well (even if it is buried under two feet of white anticipation) :)
