When travelling around Pérouges we came across a koi garden so we stopped and had a look, it was beautiful !!! It was so peaceful there, it was a sunny and warm day and the shade of the trees was welcome. The garden was covered in ponds, big ones and smaller ones and there was a large bamboo garden as well. We had a really nice afternoon there and I took loads of pictures of course.
KOI ARE SUCH BEAUTIFUL FISH ! WE HAVE SOME IN OUR POND TOO BUT THEY ARE NOT AS VISIBLE AS THESE AS WE HAVE A LOT OF PLANTS IN OUR POND
THIS WAS A BIGGY !
THIS WAS THE BIGGEST POND, IT HAD PINK LOTUS FLOWERS GROWING IN IT, LOTUS FLOWERS AND LEAVES ARE EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN WATERLILLIES
A CLOSER LOOK AT THE LOTUS FLOWERS, YOU CAN SEE IT WAS AUTUMN AS THE LEAVES ARE GETTING BROWN
THE LOTUS SEEDHEADS ARE USED IN FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
COS OF THE MANY ROCKS IN THE GARDEN THERE WERE MANY LITTLE LIZZARDS SUNBATHING
AND THE BEES WERE BUZZING……
THIS WAS THE ENTRANCE TO THE BAMBOO GARDEN
