Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens

I did a double page layout for Erika's Journaling Course Week # 7 - Powerful Bullet Journaling.

This is what the journaling says:

* One of the most beautiful places we visited whilst in Pattaya, Thailand in 2005 was Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens.

* Mrs Nong Nooch decided to turn the fruit orchard into a Tropical Garden.

* Mrs Nong Nooch was inspired by the beauty of world renown gardens, where she visited during her trips abroad.

* About 45 kinds of bougainvillea are grown here, many are clipped into a shaped hedge

* It was beautiful just walking around amongst the gardens.

* The land was brought to originally grow fruit trees.

* The gardens have an extensive collection of Bromelaids, palm garden, cacti garden, bonsia garden fern collection etc.....

* Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens has a private plant collection that is possibly thee largest in Asia.

* The gardens emphasize serenity and tranquility through the use of shady spaces, majestic palm trees and various sized round rocks and shrubs.

* It really was the highlight of our trip.

Here are some close ups.
