Botanic Gardens, Lotus Pond

The Lotus Pond is located in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It is linked to the Main Pond and sits beside the Oriental Garden. The fountain in the middle of the pond is almost swamped by the lotus or water lilies which are thriving at this time of year. A sandstone Japanese lantern can also be seen in the distance, one of two that were made in 1921 by Mr F.J. Read, Outer-Domain Stonemason.


  1. Lovely scene--I bet the gardens are a wonderful place to wander around. Mickie :)

  2. Wonderful lily pond and great watery reflections for the day! Such a lovely looking place! Enjoy your weekend, Jim!

  3. Hi Jim, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. Looks like the Day of the Triffids. Jungle-like.

  5. I love the idea of Botanic Gardens being built inside the mess and noise of a modern city. And i particularly like the idea of a large watery area, filled with water lilies. A person can be truly at peace with nature here, instead of going insane at work or in traffic.

  6. I think I remember this pond, lotus plants I think, especially nice when in bud or in flower.

    1. Thanks, Paul. I wasn't sure if they were but I've updated the post now after doing some more research. Cheers.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
