Just a little bit more of that precocious daring spring that was slowly but surely coming out a few months ago. Now it’s quickly becoming so hot and humid that going out into the sun requires some serious thought and consideration. Oh, to go back to the days when the only worry was wearing too little.
This gorgeous little garden is at the bottom of the National Palace Museum here and I kind of love it :) It’s chock full of some rather nostalgic memories of feeding the fishes, walking along the bridges “back in the day”. Those fish. Massive.
There’s just something about maple leaves and blue skies that stops even someone as unromantic as me.
Okay, perhaps that little romantic in me stopped for 5-10 minutes to try to catch the quintessential two-swans-one-heart shape. But hey, :)
Fish, fish, fish. aggressively hungry; and i mean aggressive. you don’t want to be in a dark cove with one of these in between it and some food.
I may have loved the ducks more than anything else. i just really have a thing for ducks from rubber ones to real ones. *insert sesame street ernie reference*
Best part is that the garden isn’t overwhelmingly large or anything so it can quickly be covered in a reasonable amount of time. The amount of walking required is just enough so you don’t feel guilty spending 15-30 minutes just sitting at the conveniently placed benches and resting areas enjoying the scene. Heck, definitely my place to take a book to and read if it weren’t a tad bit crowded and noisy at times. As it was a Sunday and crowded that day, I loved it anyway.
