Reflections of the Weekend--Childhood Joy







































 Childhood's simple joys
 Lasting imprints on young minds
 Memories for life

Wichita Botanical Gardens have a wealth of lovely bronze statues throughout the gardens. This is one of my favorites.

Fantastic statues and the reflection really makes the photo. I love looking at them - I will be posting photos of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, GA next week and its statuary.

No wonder this is one of your favorites...it would be mine, too. The sculptor must have a special love for children. Wonderful capture.
