Elegant Springtime Terrace

                                            Springing to Life
There's an anomalous whatsit on the garden wall. Is it an ill-conceived trompe l'oeil of a planter? Maybe a U.FO.? No, it's just a reflection of my golden cell-phone case on the windowpane as I snapped this photograph. You can see its three buttons behind the blossoming jasmine.
