Charmed in Savannah

Out of all the walls I have photographed this year,
 I like this view of botanical walls from Savannah the best. 

These snakey walls are visually and historically interesting to me. The charming iron fence holds the formal gardens apart from the rest of the world. Within this front yard paradise, paths and plantings tell old stories of social rectitude and the civilization of nature in the Old South. It's an old-fashioned view these days, but an attractive one, if not only for the sense of peace involved in reveries and nostalgia.

I like the contrast of light and dark in this one, as well as the playful geometry of the gardens.
