With its waterfalls, bridges, and stone paths that wander among crepe myrtles, azaleas, Japanese maples, dogwoods, and peach and cherry trees, the Japanese Garden is a peaceful hideaway in the Park. This particular garden is a daimyo style, and includes a tea garden, a kaiyushiki stroll garden, and a scroll garden.

Mosaic Monday: Japanese Garden
It's Monday and that means Mosaic Monday, hosted every week by the lovely Mary at The Dear Little Red House. Be sure you visit.
Edited to include link to Today's Flowers -- a virtual flower garden. So many of you have enjoyed the iris, I thought I should share them a little more!
Mr. Dragon and I went to the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park last week.
It was a beautiful afternoon. The humidity was low and we had the garden almost to ourselves.
I have lots of photos and you may have to put up with them for several weeks!
This is the Japanese Tea House and all of these photos are shots from or around the Tea House.
We were too late for the azaleas in the Japanese Garden, but there were a few Iris still blooming.
More next week!
A quick update on Mr. Dragon. The feeding tube is out and he is learning how to eat all over again. Much easier said than done. He doesn't have much energy, so when we go out we make sure there are plenty of places to sit and rest. The Japanese Garden was perfect. Going in the afternoon, all the school children (at the museum of natural science or the zoo) were gone and we could find a good parking place. He's lost weight. Each day is an adventure, but the doctors are happy about the pathology report and very optimistic. We keep plugging along.
Thanks again for all your love, prayers, support, white light, et al.
We do appreciate it and you!
