The Lily Pond, just south of the Botanical Building, is an eloquent example of the use of reflecting pools to enhance architecture.

Personally I liked (as always) palm trees, especially these in a group on the left on my picture. I wonder whether they could grow in my climate (not so cold as most people think) - at least in summertime hehe.
