Bloedel Reserve Reflecting Pool in the rain

Most of us will never have a reflecting pool in our garden, but water in the garden comes in many forms. The Bloedel Reserve has many beautiful ways to use water in the garden., this is just one.

A waterfall

This small waterfall has been ‘tuned’ to make lovely music. The water enters in a lovely fishpond.

    Very fun. Alas, the water in MY garden (if you can call what I have a garden) is a swamp at the moment. But one lives in hope….

    Wouldn’t I love a reflecting pool! As it is, my little pond can barely hold a water lettuce once it starts making little lettuces. Love water in the garden!
