Jardim municipal









A modern park is shown on the previous three posts, so, now is the time for an old one, dating from the 18th century, at Oeiras downtown.
Some more photos can be seen here and here.

This is an interesting contrast with the last 2 days. Cool shade and symmetry. I love the first photo - the allee.

They take so long to grow, I wonder if there will be many to enjoy before long. In this country, at least, it is unusual for someone to undertake something that won't reach maturity in his lifetime.

I really appreciate your visits to my blog, JM. It's so nice to wake up and find your friendly comments.
You've outdone yourself here, I love these kinds of architectural details and would love to spend time there. Just exquisite.

This is definitely a place where I would enjoy reading one of those previous poets work in of those nice shady spots...
Perfect to let your imagination wander..

This is a beautiful park. I especially like the archway. A very different park from the previous one.
