What a romantic place! Your picture makes me think of Monet, the french painter. Beautyful!

So many lovely reflections. I could sit there for a while and "reflect".

Nicely composed, Lily. This has a lot to offer. I have read about Westbury Gardens but have never been there.

It's like Europe, and it's like China — the older civilizations knew the value of water for meditation and peaceful reflection.

Beautiful! I love the iron fence. The pond full of lilies and the fence coincide beautifully.

wonderful shot, Lily.
I love the koi, and all the different greens are cooling to the eye.

This is a lovely, peaceful place. I love how each arch in the fence corresponds to and creates a perfect circle with, the dips in the brick wall behind.
