It's a good thing I AM relaxed, otherwise I'd be in a tizz to get to this utterly tranquil looking place.

Nice pic of you below in front of the tower building ;) Just shows the sheer scale of it all. This place was truly a delight to visit. Brilliant pics- love the lake and vegetation too. As for those wee guys though- perhaps l will be dreaming of them tonight - scary lol- just kidding.
Bests and hugs x

Nope, I'm not relaxed enough - know any good Buddhist retreats?
PS must have temples and a stone rabbit

Val said...

Jellyhead, what a shame you are not in the UK, I could recommend some next month!

Just love the lotus pool, its too cold to grow them over here. Such a beautiful plant, so symbolic too.

Thanks for all the wonderful pics!

Beautiful Alice! Thanks for sharing.

My, oh my, yes, it's very peaceful! I too love the lotus pool. So tranquil. Just looking at it is relaxing. There's certainly no shortage of green in those grounds. They must have a good source of water. Lots of funny little men around...haunting Horizon's dreams :)
Well, you're lulling me to sleep, so goodnight dear Alice xox
Your pictures are beautiful.

Very nice trip to the gardens. I would be sitting below that tower out of breath from all those steps myself...but I'm sure that you are just posing for the picture.

This entire series is wonderful, Alice... but I guess you have to be there to get relaxed. From my computer screen the word would be 'exciting'.

The fascinating thing is that you can travel to another world while remaining in Australia.

Catching up again - what a wonderful place. Not sure I could relax, either.. Everything looks so beautiful and fascinating.. Thanks for taking us along.. Missing you all.

Kerri said...
