Oriental garden

After our failure to visit this garden on Monday, we got our bikes out today and cycled there today.
We went to the Jardin Botanica, Molino de Inca.
We knew very little about it in advance, apart from that it closes on a Monday.
Today the huge entrance gates were welcomingly open and the entrance fee was only one euro each.
For that we had the whole place to ourselves, and we wandered around among the fountains, waterfalls and enormous palm trees.
There was a few cages with bored looking birds in them which was a shame, and it was far nicer to watch the flocks of wild green parokeets screeching and flying from tree to tree.
There was also a very peaceful Japanese garden with a pond, raked gravel and cloud pruned olive trees - very imaginative.
