I have a dream…
The photo in the center of my fantasy collage is a 16th century engraving by Dutch artist Martin Heemskerck
"Hanging Gardens of Babylon" and all the others are from Kew Garden U.K.
... and that is to visit the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
I know I can't...but
Since the very first time I heard of The Hanging Gardens of Babylon I have had a desire to go there. I know of course that it is utterly ridiculous and totally impossible but I can always travel in my fantasy.
“The gardens were supposedly built by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II around 600 BC. He is reported to have constructed the gardens to please his homesick wife, Amytis of Media, who longed for the trees and fragrant plants of her homeland Persia. The gardens were destroyed by several earthquakes after the second century BC” wikipedia
During a visit at Kew Gardens I took some photographs that I’m using for this post's fantasy collage.
This week’s theme in Blooming Friday is Dreams. Go to Katarina’s place Roses and stuff and find out what more dreams are out there.
But first…Don’t be a stranger my friend, write something.
