I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to visit the Japanese Garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.
I think I found it.
The Japanese Maples were all draped in scarlet and gold.
The seven acre garden was built in 1973. It was once a rock quarry that underwent a magnificent transformation.
The landscape is done in the Kyoto style.
Quite a few bridges can be traversed.
I loved the sound of this gorgeous waterfall…
…that spilled into a peaceful lake.
The Imperial Carp (koi) that swim in the ponds and lake were stupendous.
Perhaps even too big for a nice lunch for this Great Blue Heron.
There were several different meandering paths to take.
It was almost impossible to not feel Zen after walking along one or two.
Several simple stone Asian structures dot the landscape.
My adorable companion and I made sure to take a few moments to reflect on the beauty.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour.
Our company arrives today and we will be busy through the weekend.
I can’t wait to share all of the holiday projects that I have been working on.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
