Who would expect to find dragons in the garden? Well these two Chinese dragons look quite at home in the park gardens.
When I first visited China, I fell in love with the beautiful landscaping that I found everywhere. However, I also found some interesting anomalies as well which I will share along with some photos of the beautiful landscape areas.
This November scene above was found at Martyr’s Park in Changsha. If you look at the trees in the background, you can see that they stake them rather differently then we do.
Look carefully and you can see that there are young trees beginning to grow out of either side of the window of this Catholic Church in Guangzhou.
OK, there are no anomalies here, just a beautiful setting.
While visiting the Forbidden City in Beijing, we were warned to be careful and be sure not to climb those perilous hills. So, I warned my kids who looked at me like I was crazy ;^)
The scenery was just breathtaking in many of the areas we visited.
Don’t you think that this tree has outgrown it’s original planting area? Maybe they should have read the plant label ahead of time to see how large this tree would get.
Beauty can be found everywhere, such as this museum garden in Hangzhou.
Beautiful Banyan trees just a block from our hotel.
Okay, I admit that this photo has nothing to do with gardens or gardening. But, since there are two trees in the background I thought I could include it. This street worker had propped up his ladder in the middle of the intersection and had it resting against the wires.
I have more pictures to share, some beautiful and others that are humorous, but that is for another post….
