Botanic Gardens. Oriental Garden

This pergola is located at the entrance of the Oriental in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It is flanked by a pair of bronze lions known as "Temple Dogs". They were made in Thailand and were donated by the Friends of The Gardens in 1998. The garden features wild and cultivated plants from warm-temperate and sub-tropical areas of China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Taiwan and Bhutan.

  2. Hi Jim,

    How's the life downunder? Wow... very pretty... Hot summer day, I can see?
