LA DOUCE FRANCE : PEROUGES 3


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.

  2. Gorgeous place – fish are so calming. Friends of ours had bought a house in France with something like a small lake (or a large dam.) It had one Koi carp in it but he was so big he would create a sort of wake as he swam from one end toward his evening feed at the other. It was quite amazing.

    • koi can become REALLY big especially when they live in a huge pond, I hope your friend will give his koi some friends to play with ! some people will give away their koi as they become too big for their ponds so if he asks arround and tells people he has a real big pond he’ll get some for free !, I’m glad you like my blogpost, I just added a new one about our visit to Monaco
