a very green park

Emily and I went to a local park. My family had gone there many times when I was a child, but since then more acreage has been added, and more gardens.   A fu dog guards the place.

These steps led brought us near a beautiful Japanese style garden,

with a fountain and real water lilies.

There were gardens and water fowl everywhere we turned. In the wetlands garden we saw a pond so covered with algae, we weren't sure it was a body of water till we spied some ducks gliding along.

Another pond with more ducks had a picturesque white bridge across it

Suddenly they all started toward land - a young couple had some food for them.

There were statues - of unicorns and a lion, a sailboat and another fu dog.  

A fairy, and a pagoda with stained glass peacocks for windows.

There was an area with all sorts of poultry and other wild birds in cages

flowers, flowers everywhere,

and of course a kitty in somebody's window to see us on our way.

Joining Fiona today, on Green Day.
