7/8 Outdoor Wednesday #26

Here are some shots taken at the Oriental and Lotus Gardens which was my favorite part of Wickham Park.
Here is a close-up of statue in image above.

An inspiration place for prayer or meditation.

This is a place to kneel and pray.

I thought this was a very peaceful scene. For more information go to

  1. Joyce, I am in love with that first shot of the archway. How wonderful it is! I like so many of the shapes of things in Oriental architecture, and I like it when furniture echoes those shapes. I have a table that is similar to that arch. I guess that's why it spoke to me so much! :-)

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

  2. Beautiful pictures! I love the last shot, what a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature's bounty. Thanks for stopping by, I hope to post more firework shots from the key later. DH took some shots with what I call his "mr. fancy pants" camera, can't wait to see how they turn out. Mine were shot with a little point and shoot coolpix and it doesn't like it when you move (and I'm one of those that can't sit still lol). Kathy
