Monet's Not the Only One With Water Lilies!

Who doesn't love water in the garden? And what's better than combining water with plants as in this simple water garden at Reynolda Gardens in Winston-Salem, NC.

Reynolda Gardens are open to the public with no admission fee - if you worked in the area you'd have a wonderful spot for lunch on sunny days! Originally designed in 1917 for the Reynolds family (of R. J. Reynold tobacco fame), the gardens were simplified in the 30s and donated to Wake Forest University in 1961.
I've visited Reynolda twice in recent weeks and here are my favorite pics of the water garden.

I'll have more snapshots of these lovely gardens over the next week. I'd love to hear about your favorite public gardens!
