In this outfit - white pants and stripy top - I imagine myself somewhere far away in the open sea, on the deck of my personal yacht leaning to the mast. Alas, no sea nearby and no yacht in my possession. So, instead I am wearing it for a walk in the botanical garden and leaning to the exotic Yucca tree.
The cute rabbit application on the t-shirt is furry and it makes it even more cute. The writing is in French and says "joy". Well, I did get plenty of joy yesterday walking along the paths of the garden. This is a really very nice place where one can enjoy a pleasant walk or organize a picnic.
The Garden covers 200 acres of the natural forest-land with a rushing spring of the Godavari river. There are approximately 500 specimens of flowering and non-flowering plants, including some 66 different species of fern, 115 orchids, 77 cacti and succulents, and about 200 trees and shrubs, some of them endangered or rare.
They say there are 256 varieties of birds and 300 variations of the butterfly living in the Garden. I spotted a few but didn't manage to catch them on my camera.
But I caught someone else: this couple of siblings, the girl is dressed in her weekend's best it seems - the dress is embellished with sequins and sparks so much in the sun.
and another couple of kids playing on the gigantic old stub. The girl seems to be bare-bottomed. Well, perhaps a little wet accident...
So if you are in Kathmandu and want to escape the noise of the city, go straight to Godavari Botanical Garden. Even if you do not find out something new about plants, at least you will have a good rest for your soul.
Linking up with Patti's Visible Monday. Have a nice day!
