The Oriental Garden....Photo heavy!


Today was another beautiful sunny day so we decided to go to the Oriental Garden which is located in Alhaurin de la Torre, Malaga.  Although we've driven past many times, we'd never been inside so today we did just that.  

Unfortunately we chose a day when they were cleaning out a lot of their water features but this didn't deter us, we still had a pleasant time walking around and looking at the plants, quite a few of which, I believe, are native to Japan.


Of course I had to take one of my dolls with us so that I could get some doll photos too, so I brought along Sienna, my Bastian in Saffron skin by Little Cosmos Dolls.  I hope you'll enjoy the photos and seeing this pretty and tranquil little space here in Malaga, southern Spain.


 One of several bright red bridges that pass over the water feature...



There are loads of fish in their ponds and also a sign saying not to feed the turtles but we didn't see any, so maybe they're hibernating at this time of year.




Planting up the Poinsettias for Christmas...



Lots of bright red berries...















Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed seeing this attractive and peaceful Oriental park.

Big hugs, Sharon xxx

  1. Gorgeous photos!! We have a Japanese garden near too, but it's been closed for a long time for repairs. Every time I pass near I check, but still closed. Hope I can visit it next year!
    It looks like your girl had a great time too!

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. That's a shame the garden near you is closed, maybe come the spring it'll be open to the public again?

  2. What a serene looking place to visit. I really enjoyed seeing all the different features and that bridge is quite lovely. Reminds a little of the bridge from a Korean drama I watched recently. And Sienna looks like she fits right in with the environment. Thank you for sharing the visit with us.

    1. It really is serene yes! I could have sat down in the sunshine and read a book, like a man we saw sitting there, but we had other places to go so we didn't hang about too long.
      Thank you for your nice comments :)
