With threatening rain in the forecast, I risked it to the Topiary Garden today!
It was as if I was entering a garden party with couples arm-in-arm, people rowing a boat, some may even be dancing (hard to tell with some of them). The park has an interesting background. Read about it here!
It surely is an oasis: a tranquil oasis right behind (now) one of my favorite libraries ever. I loved walking around these carefully cared-for topiaries, some of them have yet to fill in completely to what they are to become ( I feel like that on most days myself).
And the pond! With the huge Coi fish!! They surprised me, to say the least. I was wondering if the pond was big enough for these giants?
I didn't linger too long as the rain started to fall. I can imagine, though, on a sunny fall day, with the family and a picnic. It might just be the perfect spot to hang for a while.
