So lush!! I especially like the greens in V3 Smile V2 is very interesting. As I look at the willowy stuff on the left, it feels like it's swaying ever-so-slightly.

Great shots, Colleen, and I'm glad you're back home safe and sound Smile

Nice set. V3 is my personal favourite, though if it were mine I would adjust it to make the verticals on the pagoda in the distance (top left of the image) vertical.

Three lovely scenes taken in these beautiful and tranquil gardens. V3 appeals the most, what a shame you didn't have a lovely clear blue sky as it would have made such a difference in v1Sad
