Mosaic Monday: Japanese Garden

The hostess for Mosaic Monday is the lovely Mary at the Little Red House. Be sure to visit to see the other mosaics.

I'm also linking to My World Tuesday where you can travel around the world without leaving home!

Here are some more photos from the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park.
Designed by world-renowned Japanese landscape architect Ken Nakajima, the garden was built to symbolize the friendship between Japan and the United States, and to recognize Houston’s thriving Japanese community.

It was a beautiful day in this island of serenity just steps from the Texas Medical Center.


Mosaic Japanese Garden

You could hear the water gently falling and the leaves in the trees -- talking to us in the gentle breeze.

Joy to You!

Hi Snap,

I, too love the sound of the wind in the leaves. Our neighbor has some giant bamboo and eucalyptus that each have their own distinct rustle.
