The waterlily pond of Matsue English Garden

During my short tour of Shimane Prefecture (Japan), I visited Matsue English Garden by Lake Shinji, which is designed by a renowned British garden designer.

This beautiful waterlily pond immediately reminded me of the paintings of Claude Monet.

In the brightly shining sun of early summer by the lake, it seemed to me that the glistening flowers and leaves of waterlily on the smooth surface of water showed me the splendor of life which Monet kept pursing in his painting.
