Remember that time I told you about a kind of secret place I found? Well, here are some photos.

This is the entrance to the park. I thought that this pergola was covered with Wisteria, but there aren't any blooms on it... not yet, anyway.

Then I go look at the tadpoles. They are getting bigger, and they don't move so fast anymore. I don't know exactly how long it takes, but some of them should be getting legs before too long.

This is the pond where they live.


Here they are:

Then I quietly make my way to this bridge to look for the fish. There are only a few and I don't want to disturb them.

You can see that there's quite a lot of debris in the water. We've had some high winds and rain lately. It should clear out in a few days.

Then I turn my attention to the flowers. They are so big and colorful that I feel badly about trying to contain it all in a picture.  The wind was blowing and they looked like they bobbing up and down on some unseen wave.

Look at all the different colors in this one.

This little bird was taking a bath and enjoying himself. Regretably, the sound of my camera frightened him and he flew away. I am sorry little bird.

I can always get my bearings by looking for this thing. It's visible from the park.

So that's our little trip to the park.


  1. Gorgeous pictures, Linda. I'm waiting with bated breath for you to write, "That tadpole has legs!" :-)

  2. What a beautiful oasis! These photos are just stunning.
