A MEMORABLE POND

Last Sunday we visited my 'younger Grandma', yes... my father's aunt.
She lives near a wood with a fresh air and green scenery.
There was a fish pond in front her house.
So many gold fishes were swimming  here and there among the Nymphaea or Water lilies clumps.



The water on the pond was came from a little spring in front her house, so clear and fresh.
This pond have reminded me in to my childhood.
My family often visited this lovely place when I was a little girl.
Me and my sister always played on the edge of the pond picked Canna flowers and took them home.
We also gathered sweet basil seeds and made special beverages from it.
Sometime we played on the spring with a little stream on it.



A very nice place...
We could find so many flowers and foliage on the edge of the pond.
So colorful...
They grew wildly, looked so happy lived in a very nice atmosphere.












We also found some fruit trees there.
There were guava, bananas, pineapples, wax guava, soursop, jackfruit, and many more...


Look this jackfruit tree...
The picture above was a part with some male flowers on the twig.
And the picture below was a part with three young fruits were hanging on the twig.
Both of them were on the same tree, so interesting.



A lovely place...
I will always miss it...

    1. I really love her very clear spring. There were some jackfruit trees there. It needs more than three months to get them ripen.

  5. Prześliczne te nenufary pływające po stawie. Zainteresowało mnie to drzewo - pierwszy raz widzę takie owoce. Przesyłam serdeczne pozdrowienia.
