I am so lucky we have a Japanese Garden here in the city ! Being on the west coast, we have lots of wonderful mosses and amazing trees. I love how the moss grows on the lanterns throughout the gardens. It’s one of my favourite places to visit.

    FABULOUS IMAGE FULL OF THE GREAT PERSONALITY OF THE JAPANESE PEOPLE!!!

  • This is my favourite garden Anna… the Japanese have mastered this in creating amazing places with great calmness, serenity and simple beauty without lots of flowers. Each area is a scene all unto itself. I love going through the garden and trying to spot all the lanterns …especially the ones with the delightful mossy tops! Thank you kindly my dear! xo

    These very beautiful gardens would be such a cool and tranquil place to spend time on a hot summer day. Lovely shot Wendi

  • It’s my favourite place. Linda… I’m trying hard to get back so I can see the reds in the trees. Hope the rains and winds don’t blow the leaves off first tho’! Thank you kindly for stopping by.
