Gorgeous! Nothing as calming as a garden pond. I think I will try and put a small one in my garden next year:)

absorbing the sight

not wanting to lose it
as i sleep through the night...

Jennifer, they are so peaceful and serene. Though these photos are from the Botanical Gardens in SF, unfortunately not in my own garden :)

betchai, that would be fun, thanks for stopping by.

cherie, lovely poem and thank you so much. Stop by anytime :)

I always love water plants on the garden pond. They provide nutrients and oxygen to the fishes, while helps cleaning up the water. Awesome photos.

Wow, I could sit there for hours.

I just love the way the orange koi sort of "pop" out of that luscious green texture!! Nice photos!

Great pictures. I especially like that first one. Are those tiny lily pads?

Charity Joy Bell Childs said...

You know, there is this restaurant not so far from here, and it's floating on a lake full of lily pads...it's so wonderful to just look at all the lily pads floating with the white flowers on top of them....but then....the mosquitoes.... :)
