I had a wonderful experience touring the gardens of one of my knitting-jazzercise friends. The landscaping was gorgeous and the big treat for me was the koi pond and waterfall.
In. My. Dreams.
The water lilies have just surfaced and one can see the red-orange fish so clearly, since there isn't a mud bottom like my pond.
This is the walkway to the pond, which is one of several levels of the yard, all built up from the bluff alongside a wide spot in the Tennessee River. Yes, that is a banana tree clump. Japanese fiber banana, not fruiting, so far.
Each level has something wonderful to see and a place to sit and enjoy the view of the river and boats as they pass. I took over 90 photos, but a little bit at a time for the blog.
We had chilly overcast rain threatening day, which was a good thing as a bright sunny day would have made it impossible to leave.
After visiting this garden, I realize my garden is in a way different category...RUSTIC.
I think I'll go out and pull some weeds.
