Always intrigued by water, we lingered beside the waterfall, stream, and pools of the rock garden in Brent and Becky Heath’s display gardens yesterday.

Koi darted and gathered in the depths of the pools, floating among the rocks.

Shadows cast by surrounding plants floated on the surface of the water.

We were nearly afloat ourselves, buoyed along by the beauty of these golden spring time gardens.

Water remains essential to all life on Earth.

It courses through our veins, just as it gives form and substance to every leaf and stem in our gardens.

Our gardens grow lush and bright because we are blessed with abundant rain and are surrounded by vibrant rivers here in coastal Virginia.  We still have pure groundwater to drink and to irrigate our gardens.

Water is a gift to be treasured and protected; a resource which fills our lives, and our gardens, with beauty.
