Evenings in the garden are very special in the waning light with the reflections on the ponds and the quiet activity of the birds. Garden lighting enhances the beauty of the waterfalls. Tables and chairs are scattered around and there are numerous seating areas that offer some privacy. Bring a picnic or have a glass of wine and some appetizers before going to dinner.
