Lake Shoukou

  • Lake Shaukou in August

(Revised 5 Jan 2016)
It is just our small water garden pond. I call it Lake Shaukou in memory of our wonderful dog. (See here)
In its conception, it’s flow pattern is intended as an abstraction to remind me of a small corner of a mountain stream in the jungle of the Borneo Island.
Plantings in this part of our garden has just begun. Progresses suffered major set backs in the last two winters; unexpected leakage and drainage problems etc. Many of the newly added costly anchoring plants were severely damaged or killed in the severe winter of 2014.
