Exploring Buda

I have been spending time.  Spending time drawing, looking, reading, photographing and getting to know the place.  One of the things that continues to astound me is how I keep finding new things.  Little details, objects I see and wonder how I didn't see them before.  Like a good work of art Buda doesn't present everything at once, and the spending of time is rewarding.

Another impressive aspect of Buda is the army of volunteers that keep the House and Garden open.  Without volunteers Buda couldn't survive for the rest of us to enjoy, but I also think it must be a very rewarding way to spend time.  If houses hold the vibe of those that live there, then the Leviny family must have been pretty lovely folk.
