The park - Part 2
All over in this park are small little waterfalls like this one. The sound of the water is very pleasant. These cacti were huge and had even bigger thorns on them
All the ponds are fairly still so I was able to get some great reflection shots.
I don't know what these little daisies are called but they do make a pretty show.
Even though it was such a lovely day, I was surprised to find not many people walking around the park.
I think the gardens are very well kept. Aloes and cycads.
Mother duck was having a nap while she could........
...and the little ones were almost hidden amongst the plants resting too.....
