With our parasols open, my friend Sarada and I took a walk through the grounds at Sayen Gardens. The mists from the fountains and waterways offered a cooling respite on a humid afternoon.
|The bridge over the koi pond.|
|A charming fountain couple.|
|There is a rainbow near the base of the spout.|
|The garden seems to have its own Whomping Willow.|
|A welcoming gazebo.|
|Bordered by fresh greenery|
|We rested on a shaded bench and fanned ourselves whilst sipping iced tea.|
For those experiencing summer temperatures, I hope you are finding refreshment in the warm weather. Whatever the climate, may these pictures transport you to peace and calm.
Happy painting, ladies!
