I could appreciate the view of this courtyard from every angle, I kept walking around it noticing new details emerge with every pass.
Beautiful symmetry was apparent in every garden, patterns forming with every vista. who could not appreciate such balance?
The water's reflection danced upon this statue in a way that was so magical, I wish this photo could have shown this, I had never witnessed this before and it was entrancing.
This bust of a bearded man was a little above waist height, but the photo I took while standing did not reflect his eyes, so I searched for the right angle to do him justice and finally found it, his eyes unlike many of the statues had depth and kindness.
Even the garden seat was inspired, I wonder how many quilters have taken a photo of the details of this flooring and used this in one of their creations.
Surrounding the garden are walls painted in such fine detail, the beauty of this place will live in my memory, its serenity to be drawn upon when needed. I have more photos to share which will trickle into my blog now and then. I will have to return to this villa in the spring when the garden will be in its full splendor.
