Here are a few more of the many pictures I took on my visit to the Chinese Garden of Friendship last Sunday.
Ashley. Darling Harbour, July 2005.
Ashley gives us an 'inscrutable' look. For only $5 Bodhi & I got to play dress-ups with Ashley, and wander around the garden taking pics for half an hour. This picture was taken inside the the Pavilion where the costume hire was located.
Roof of the Twin Pavilion. Darling Harbour, July 2005.
The Gurr (or Clear View Pavilion) interior. Darling Harbour, July 2005.
This is the inside of the three storey tall pagoda type structure at the top of the garden. All the carving inside the Pavilion was of different types of plants and the lantern was really beautiful.
Winter magnolia. Darling Harbour, July 2005.
We passed these small magnolia blossoms on the way from The Gurr, as we walked around the lake.
Windows. Darling Harbour, July 2005.
This passage way ran behind the Peace Boat Pavilion towards the Teahouse, and I really loved this view through the windows and a glimpse of the banana palm growing in between.
