Pincrest Garden

19 Jan
I went there yesterday for the Pinecrest Arts & Crafts Festival. The festival itself was small but the garden was totally a hidden gem. It is the site of former Parrot Jungle, so it has been around for a while, as evident by the thick growth of trees that gives the place a rainforest feel. I am so glad the city decided to just preserve it and open it for free instead of tearing it down for some condo or house.  With its thick foliage, one gets a feeling of being transported to another time and place.

What kind of fern is that?

And what kind of fruit is this?

Then we see this beautiful lake. With swan and other water fowl.

Then we spot a peacock. I only have a standard digital camera so you can imagine how close he walked up to us.

There he is, in full display of his glorious beauty. He walked around, facing every direction, showing off his plummage.  A guy said behind me, “Looks like he can’t get any satellite signal!” and we all laughed.
