There's always something interesting lurking around the garden, you'll just have to open up your eyes and explore your surroundings. Along the way we saw this tree which was tattooed with names and messages. I didn't get the name of that tree, the bark was smooth like a paper and you can easily write anything on it. It was like a Guest list for all the visitors who wants to leave a mark or something behind about them. I believe that tree was special, it's a place that nobody should miss when they visit the garden.

Feast your eyes passing along fabulous fountains and sundials on your way. My favorite was the Swiss Granite Fountain, an ever- revolving stone ball.We had a great laugh having are pictures taken at this Fountain.

An Arc of Orchids will lead you to more spectacular views, bring out your camera and have your best jump shot pose here.
