THE GARDENS

Haven’t written for awhile – life gets in the way – but have had some adventures.

A few weekends back a friend suggested we visited the Japanese Gardens – a fairly popular site, but not a place I’ve been. The day was beautiful and the gardens had lots of trees, plants and koi,  however because it is a Japanese garden there are not an overabundance of flowers.  The garden does have a couple waterfalls though and is unique in that it is tucked in the middle of a city on a busy road, yet you feel cut off from the noise. The koi were in a variety of colors, but (I think because of all the recent rains) the ponds were extremely muddy and the koi were mostly orange and white polka dots in the water.
