The Citizen Soldier | Public Gardens, Halifax



The Citizen Soldier fountain, a statue erected as a memorial for the Boer War, is found at the Public Gardens in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It is situated in a little pond amid a weeping tree (Weeping European Beech tree) and elm (Camperdown Elm) that provides a lot of shade.  I think it's a perfect spot to bring a book with, some tea and enjoy precious quiet time.  The sound of the water is very soothing.  Often, there would be a lovely birds bathing in the water.  A nice sight.

      Merong lake dito close to us (Jones Lake) pero kakaunti ang bulaklak. Iyong Public gardens reminds me of Baguio Botanical Park.
