Willie Weir : November 14th, 2012

Photos of the Day — Nov 14

We spent hours at the Kandawgyi National Gardens – a series of gardens wound through an enormous space – an orchid garden, a swamp walk, pine forest, rock garden, tea garden, euphorbia garden, etc. But it was the bamboo that dazzled. Wow! I wanted to wait for a wind storm to brew up, just so I could hear the melodious clatter. -w

Finally acknowledging the bug in my gut wasn’t going away on it’s own, we took a rest day in the cooler highlands of Pyin Oo Lwin. A stroll in Myanmar’s 435-acre national botanical garden was the only item on the agenda. The lovely manicured lawns and gardens also had an aviary where we could see hornbills and peacocks up close. The intricate design of these pheasant feathers captured my fancy. -k
