With a deep freeze covering most of the states and other parts of the world suffering in heat, I hope you can take a bit of respite in the garden rooms I've captured from the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. Today we're walking through bamboo stands and relaxing by the coolness of the koi pond.
Koi, or nishikigoi, are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp fish. In Japanese the word koi also has the meaning of love or friendship so koi are a symbol of love and friendship.
More garden rooms are around the corner, so stay tuned. This garden trip has stimulated and inspired many thoughts about work in clay but I'm letting my ideas percolate for a while. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
