I happily obliged. We were greeted by the guardians of the garden.
The lion on the left is the female and the one on the right is the male. (Thanks Beth for correcting my confused memory!) I had not known this but Roxie has much knowledge and told me this fascinating fact! It is always fun to learn new things.
The gardens has beauty created by natural elements. Right now various shades of green dominate the gardens, with an occasional splash of golds, yellows, and orange. Soon many fall colors will sneak in!
Ponds, waterfalls, and fountains of various sizes and types are scattered throughout.
Sprinkled around are benches where you can sit and contemplate the views. I thought it would be fun to have a few mats where you could lay down and rest while listening to the water!
A couple of metal cranes grace this pond.
The ponds were so calm and had wonderful reflections in them!
