Sky Watch Friday/A walk in the Gardens (5)

In all my wanders through the Gardens, I have never before seen this pond covered in waterlillies.

For more Sky Watch from around the world drop in to the home of Sky Watch Friday.

Choked would seem to be the operative word! This is not the main pond then - the one with the Monet-like bridge?

Between you and Sally the places I have to go see during this break are piling up!

I guess you'd call it part of the main pond, but the smaller section near the cafe, more sheltered, with the Asian garden. I used to come here for lunch when I worked closer and sit and watch the bats.

Monet would need the waterlillies. Nicely taken an so light.

Very nice contrast between the greens and the gray buildings. The park looks like an oasis.

You can check out my sky watch posts here and here. Happy weekends!

Great combination of ordered city and natural green park. Pretty similar grey sky with ours in Indonesia... Happy holidays.

We have booked our Sydney Accommodation and have now added this spot to our list of Sydney Attractions. Looking forward to following your comments and images to help us plan some more.

Oh wow, those lilies are taking over! Great shot of gardens. Looks like a good place to stop a while smell the flowers.

Lovely picture, but I thought more of the garden than of the skies :-)

Warm greetings from West Africa,

Ann, those are Lotus as are those lovely pink blooms below. Love the gardens in Sydney.
