in the last few days I’ve been to the Gardens three times…

twice I wasn’t able to get to my favourite spot as there were weddings taking place…

but the biggest oddity was the huge number of Pokemon Go hunters who are swarming the area around the tropical lily pond in the Leo Mol Garden…

at one point I counted 36 people sitting on the edge of the pond, and not one of them was looking at the lilies or statues…

did find this a bit sad… such a beautiful place and it seems as though many of those present weren’t even looking… 

although there were many of the hunters, it appears that about half of the people today were there to admire the Gardens… I spent a while waiting for my kids by the Boy with the Boot and was happy to see so many visitors who were excited and taking lots of photos as they entered the English Garden area…

my youngest grandson and I were able to spot a few frogs

and also had some fun checking out the Duck Pond…

he’s at a phase where he doesn’t want his picture taken but he didn’t know I was taking this one, lol…

and then his daddy gave a little assist for this one…

had a few minutes to focus on some beautiful leaves… the colours were amazing…

the purple waterlilies are still my favourite…

happy that my usual time to visit is early in the morning, when the Gardens are quiet and peaceFULL…
