Thanks for stopping by for a visit. We visited the Japanese tea garden when we visited SF! The photo is lovely and so peaceful looking. We have a heron that flies by our house every summer on the way to and from the recharge pond down the irrigation ditch (canal).

Easy to write a small book about ... thank you for this nice photography. Wearing "them" in ink after an accident, makes them indeed birds of life for me. Please have a wonderful Sunday.

Whoa your shots are improving tremendously. And I thought that this is just a painting! Love it!
Barb, thank you and it was a pleasure visiting you.

Kass, exactly, I was hearing this call, KKKAAASSS that must have been for you :D

Ratty, it's got that Japanese zen feel to it, it's very quiet and beautiful. Though now is when the tourists start to descend on all of these gardens so it's a little less quiet.

Eg, thank you so much.

Jennifer, :) you caught it. They are not real, they are steel sculptures.

Squirrel, that's what I liked most, the reflections.

Ancient digger, you caught it too :) they are sculptures.

Vanilla, they are sculptures though so well done, they do look real.

Jane, thank you, you are very welcome.

Paula, thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

Beverley, thanks so much

Glynis, thank you and great idea :)

Lisa, thank you very much for your kind words.

Icy, Thanks alot and hope you had a great weekend.

Michelle, Mrs.M, Thanks for your kind compliments xoxo
