My World: Japanese Garden

It's no secret that the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park
is one of my favorite places.

I hope you enjoy my latest visit as much as I did.

Love your photos. When I was in Japan the place I stayed had the most beautiful gardens. From my room I could look down and see this wonderful gardener work his magic each morning. I would hurry down and walk through the garden and when our paths would meet he would bow to me and I to him. We would smile and go on our way. He knew how much I loved his garden. I find these gardens to be the most peaceful place on earth.

Welcome to Sunlit Sunday. I'm so glad you linked these wonderful photos of a Japanese-style garden. They exude a sense of tranquility.

Have you ever read the Japanese blog called Green Tomato? You might enjoy it. (There's a link on my sidebar.)
