The Swiss Gardens ~ part 3

Part 1                   Part 2

More from the garden,

my pal Helen, getting the shot

and that was

which was the ceiling to this

an Indian pagoda apparently, many in Switzerland I’m sure 🙂

Helen wanted to take me up to the lily pond, so under a little bridge

to find a ‘no entry to the public’ sign, which Helen promptly climbed over and I followed on, we didn’t get caught and it was worth the risk

That’s it for this part, stay tooned, still more bits and bobs to show.

    I’ve been banned for life from more than one place for ignoring signs. They didn’t buy the “What sign? I didn’t see no stinking sign!” explanation. The resulting lily pond photos were well worth the climb. I love that ceiling, like how cool is that? I’ve done my share of floor level and ground dwelling photography — always well worth the trouble. Diversity — Swiss/Indian pagodas in English/Swiss gardens that is. Beautiful photos all-round of an interesting garden.

      1. I’m pretty OK with spiders, as long as they aren’t crawling over me.

    1. Nice gardens, by the way, but they don’t exactly scream Swiss Alps!

      1. No they are a bit of a hodge podge.

    2. I try not to lie down too much these days in case I can’t get up again 🙂 but this ceiling was worth it.

  13. Beautiful grounds! Your photography is so great. I often feel like Ive lost the scenic beauty in my photos. Amazing that they had such a beautiful area blocked off. Glad you broke the rules, and it was worth it!

  14. Clearly climbing a “no entry to the public”-sign was worthwhile. You got some gorgeous photos. And I love the little story you have created within the story of Helen getting shot and what she shot.
