Bali's climate is very conducive for realizing
one's own ideas about creating parks and gardens.
In our garden a small artificial waterfall cascades down a sun-lit hill. In the
shade of huge ferns it winds its flowery, stony way down to
a lovely goldfish pool.
Lotus and water lilies the important flowers
for Balinese offerings, with their great symbolism for the Hindu religion
grow with a variety of other beautiful water plants, which we often share with friends.
The rapid growth of this tropical flora is always wonderfully surprising.
