At the Koi pond turtles were sunning on rocks and the pagoda.
The waterfall and more turtles swimming and sunning. Notice the brown leaves toward top right. In November these were red.
The Koi swimming from shade into the sun. The smallest are at least a foot long. I was terrified I would drop my phone in the pond as I hung over the railing to take pictures. I didn't.
Little vinca were peeping through the grasses.
This reflection just blows me away. Gorgeous.
Camellias starting to bloom.
More camellias. Both of these groups of bushes were too far off the path to get close ups.
Marty enjoying our walk through the gardens.
An apple tree blooming weeks too early.
The beauty and serenity of the gardens are awesome. It is a lovely place to spend an hour or two. We plan to return in a couple of months and see what is blooming then.
