Garden Photo of the Day

Les Quatre Vents – The blue moon bridge

Photo/Illustration: Virginia Small

This Chinese moon bridge and its reflection create a gorgeous blue oval on a calm day. I’ve always wondered if it’s hard to walk on one of these steeply-arched bridges…then I found a photo that showed me what I should have guessed all along…stairs!

    what an exquisite concept. i am guessing that it is called a moon bridge the same way that a round window in a chinese garden wall or fence- is called a moon window.breathtaking.
