The gardens of our Balinese villa are so gorgeous, we decided to devote a whole photo gallery to them instead of including them in our ‘Home Away from Home in…’ post as we usually would.

The location is so beautiful and our Balinese villa gardens so tranquil that even when we had to work it was a joy to sit at the dining table on the veranda and take in the beauty of our surroundings as we listened to the wind, the birds, and the other animals around us.

At times we could hear the sound of workers chatting in the rice paddies, and the hollow tins of their mechanical ‘scarecrow’ devices rattling in the wind. At other times, especially at night, we would hear the haunting sound of singing and drums from ceremonies at the nearby temples carried on the breeze of the windy season, or ‘kite season’ as the locals call it. Magic.
