It's been awhile since The Chick and I have been on an excursion. She was enthusiastic about joining me. That's a nice change for my teenager.
We've been meaning to visit this garden for some time but you know how it is, never enough time in a day.
We arrived right as the garden opened at 10am. We were asked to put our cell phones on vibrate and keep to the paths.
It was a beautiful day for a walk. Not too cool with some clouds in the sky. The Chick and I had our cameras ready.
The ikebana displays varied. Some were simple, others more sculptural.
The garden was quiet and serene.
The highlight was feeding the koi fish.
The ducks joined in as did some pigeons.
We found so many different plants and textures to photograph.
The Chick asked if we could return in the spring time when the garden is in bloom. We sure will.
We promise to come back and visit you little friend!
