In our lives there are moments bringing back years of our memories we have forgotten far ago.It is impossible to predict when or where a second of time would become such an opened time box, but it is still worth to be always ready for such a journey, for it would be sad to lose memories for the second time.
Visiting Trentham gardens on a cold October day I was sad as the weather was too bad and it was too late and dark to make good pictures. I turned back for the last glimpse as in a moment I remembered .I remembered in a single moment how small we kids from our street were, hiding in the grasses of our wood,I remembered how this grasses did smell on hot summer afternoons, I remembered how it felt to touch them with your cheeks running down the hill, I remembered how winter snow covered these big grasses into white landscapes from nowhere and how green were they in early spring rains.
How many gardens did I have to walk to find a garden of my childhood again! I turned back for the last glimpse over the rivers of grass in Trentham gardens, knowing these grasses would be with me for ewer since now,no matter where I was.
