Photos of Ponds at Ladew Topiary Gardens

Ladew Gardens Web Site

On 6/14/06, we went to Ladew Topiary Gardens. I took over 100 pictures. I uploaded 57 of those photos, the ones showing various ponds, koi, fountains, and animals. I did not include regular garden and topiary photos because it would require too much work and space (and is not relevant to ponds). It was a bright day so I am not sure why some photos are dark. Here they are in order or our walk!

These photos were taken in the Iris Garden. It has a really long stream ending in a koi pond. My brother took the camera and kind of went crazy taking photos of the koi. They had some expensive, purebred koi, not just mixed koi. There were a few comets in with the koi.:
