The following is Tirta Gangga...a water palace in West Bali built around a holy spring. A very scenic series of lakes and fountains
i had no idea what these large plants were as they appeared to be some type of aroid pretending to be a banana tree...
Scenic old gateway slowly decaying into the jungle
Meru at the mother temple.....the black thatch that they use for temples actually comes from a palm tree (sugar palm?). I just love the huge Cyathea? that is growing alongside it
There are lots of huge trees....check out the epiphytes which include a lot of birds nest ferns
Huge buttress roots and lots of banana trees...
more rice fields....swoon!
So I hope that there are things there to inspire....Bali is a fabulous place to visit, I just wish it was closer to the UK!
If you want to read more about Bali plants, design etc do check out a couple of books I like including Balinese gardens (Tettoni/Warren) and also Gathering Places (B Walker/J. Graham) which is more architecturey but rather good and also Architecture of Bali (M Wijaya)
