Serene Garden

Hello everyone!  The video I have chosen for this post is a beautiful, 4 minute video featuring a lovely koi pond...I just love the soothing sound of the fish splashing around, as well as the bird sounds.  Enjoy!

I am still taking meds for the labyrinthitis.  I had a couple of small bouts of dizziness over the last few days;  thankfully nothing major.

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on a nature park walk over a week ago...these two photos are from their greenhouse.  I don't know what they are but I found them very pretty.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  5. I love the sound of the fish in the water. You're right--it's so soothing!

    I'm glad we don't have to know the names of flowers and other plants to enjoy them! :-)

  6. we have a lot of koi ponds here in asia too. including in some restaurants, heh :D sorry to hear you're still having some dizziness, but it's encouraging that they're mild symptoms. i hope they're gone soon and you can enjoy your walks. the red flower is very interesting! it reminds me of my country's national flower, the hibiscus, because of its bright red color =)

  7. Your photos are beautiful! The red flower is so good that it looks artificial! So shiny! The leaves below it...I have snapped them myself and love how they look, but I don't know what they are!

  9. The red one is a peace lily and I should know the second but can't think of the name. So sorry about the vertigo. That is a definite problem. Hopefully it is improving rapidly.

  10. One of my cherished memories of the past was visiting Japan and being able to feed the Koi. They would rise to the surface of the water and smack their lips...so strange yet totally amusing! Wonderful photos my friend, thoroughly enjoyable!

  20. This reminds me of taking Amber and Benjamin to the Japanese Tea Garden in Fort Worth, Texas back in our home schooling days. They loved feeding the koi!

    It is after midnight here and I am praying you are getting a good night's rest!

  21. Koi are such fun fish. I've even met a few who would come up to the surface of the water and let people pet the top of their heads. Lovely flower and plant shots, Linda! I'm sorry to hear you're still feeling dizzy, but glad the spells are minor. Hopefully they will disappear completely very soon.

  23. Hola Linda. Esa planta de flor roja que tan bien has captado, en España la conocemos como "Anturio" o "Capotillo". Es bastante fácil de criar y cuidar en casa como planta ornamental. Un abrazo,

    Hi Linda. That red flowering plant has captured so well in Spain we know as "Anthurium" or "Capotillo". It's pretty easy to raise and care at home as an ornamental. A hug,

  24. Hi Linda, I'm catching up after being away. I love the video. It brings back memories of Elsham Hall when we'd take the kids to see the carp there. Seems like they're still there.
    Love the flowers too.
    I do hope you get rid of your dizziness. Big hugs
