Japanese Garden Stroll

We took a walk through Penticton’s Japanese Garden.

The water level in the pond had dropped a lot; not surprising considering how dry August was.

We stopped to take a look at the many colourful koi. They expected us to feed them and swam eagerly to the pond’s edge.

Some of them are quite large!

This is a very tranquil garden on the edge of Lake Okanagan; such a beautiful spot.

Happy Thursday.

  1. Japanese gardens, always a place of quiet contemplation. Just like the one in Lethbridge, it must have been a challenge to find suitable species in these drier climates. Happy Thursday Lynette. Allan

    1. There are lots of bushes that I associate with wetter climates such as rhododendrons and azaleas, but I think they are well watered. I noticed a big catchment basin and of course, the lake is just a few steps away. It is a very tranquil place. Yoga classes are held there and there is always someone sitting with a book or meditating.

    1. I agree. We noticed that every time someone neared that side of the pool, the koi swam over. There were even some who didn’t leave; they just kept swimming in the same spot. That makes me think they’re being fed more than their regular meals!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
