One in a series of pictures taken in the grounds of Bhubing Palace.
Bhubing Palace also known as Phu Phing Palace is a Thai Royal Palace mainly used by the Royal Family in the early months of the year. It lies toward the top of Doi Suthep mountain not far from the magnificent temple of Wat Doi Suthep, and some 20 kilometres from the city of Chiang Mai.
Its position high up on Doi Suthep means that it benefits from a temperate climate so that it can accommodate many plants and flowers that are unusual to see in most parts of Thailand. The public may visit the extensive grounds for a small charge when the Royal Family are not in residence. The palace itself is not open to the public.
It is pleasant and peaceful place to visit after the crowds to be found at Wat Doi Suthep.

You are my neighbour, today.
I'm taking notes!
I'd love to see my garden so full of plants and colours and with that perfectly relaxed ambience. I could just imagine myself under that tree, reading a book.
You have used the stepping stones well, as they guide around the garden. I like the way you have excluded the sky, which gives a more compact, almost secret, atmosphere.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Bonjour, cher Stephen,
voilà un jardin extraordinaire où les plantes s'amusent à pousser dans tous les sens et envahissent avec beauté les lieux.
Image fort bien composée et très plaisante à regarder.

bel giardino, sembra molto naturale, con le piante che crescono rigogliose.
Ottima composizione e bei colori.

With the Chelsea Flower Show now reaching it`s conclusion this would seem to be an appropriate upload!
I rather like the stepping stones that curve gently through the frame,there is a lot to enjoy in this thoughtful composition.
Bank Holiday here and the sun is shining, HOORAY!

Nice composition to have the pathway leading all the way from the corner around and into the scene. The flowers present a literal riot of colour, and the benches look like a very inviting place to take the weight off and relax in the sun. How the other half live!!

I love the Thai gardens, the people seem to have a real feel for floral displays and a love for plants. Everywhere one sees flowers blooming or for sale. This is lovely Stephen, a pretty secluded corner filled with colourful blooms, a place to sit and soak up the peace. Beautiful. Warm regards Rosemary

Un très beau jardin avec des couleurs et des senteurs très tropicales. Il y a tellement d'informations que l'on ne sait plus ou regarder.

The paved stepping stones add lead in lines and perspective towards the back of this attractive garden. Good sharpness and the flowers add a welcome splash of color, with the Cabbages also featuring in Chinese gardens I've seen. The 2 wooden seats offer a welcome respite from the rigours of Thai temple tours! Tfs!

Beautiful garden, interesting flowers.
I like frame and colors.

Stephen, there are some lovely colors in this image, and the path leading from front to back draws the eye in very nicely. I kind of miss having a focal point for the image, but there is lots to enjoy here nonetheless. Thanks.

Ah you visited the King's mother palace and her extensive collection of European, mostly Swiss flowers and plants. Even after her death the palace is well maintained and is famous for its flowers.
Yes you are right accidents happen very quickly, within seconds, but its takes as in the case of the broken wrist months to recover. It now is more then 3 months after surgery but my left hand still is not 100% recovered. As my doctor put it, it will take up to 6 months but can go on for another 6 months. It depends the patient. So far I was very lucky, i never had pain and I do not feel weather changes despite my titanium plate implant. How about you?

Un endroit que je ne connait pas, très plaisant, joliment bien garni de feuillages et de fleurs , un endroit idéal pour se détendre
amaryllis (37039) 2013-05-28 5:39
un jardin bien fourni, bien entretenu, des bancs, des couleurs de fleurs et de la verdure
un beau cadrage ainsi présenté

con l'aiuto del clima e grazie alla bravura dei giardinieri, questo giardino è una meraviglia.
Piante di tutti i generi e di ogni colore si affollano attorno alle panchine e sicuramente rendono piacevole soffermarsi seduti su di esse.
Con questo scatto hai fatto una bella sintesi di quello che probabilmente è in più grande scala, ma sufficiente per farci una bella idea.
Ciao e buona serata
