I’m thinking Monet…

This beautiful pond is part of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey. Best known for its arboretum, it has many interesting nooks and spaces.

The pond is home to a vast number of orange/brown fish, ranging in size from small to massive. They can be coaxed out, from under the lilly-pads, with bread crumbs. Groups of excited children stare with fascination at the teeming hoards.

There is a spacious cafe in the relatively modern buildings which offers welcome refreshment after a stroll around the grounds.

Currently, the grounds are show-casing a varied collection of sculptures which add to the enjoyment of a visit.
