The Japanese Tea Garden | {The Serenity Project}

Recently we visited the Japanese Tea Garden. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much; I thought we would walk around for maybe half an hour, take a few photos, and then head to lunch.

We were pleasantly surprised with this beautiful park!  The garden has a long history and first opened in 1919. Since then, it’s been through several renovations, the most recent in 2008. Now it’s a beautiful, serene oasis in the middle of a bustling city. September 16, 2017-ECC_7993EileenCritchley1September 16, 2017-ECC_7981EileenCritchley1September 16, 2017-ECC_7988EileenCritchley1September 16, 2017-ECC_7991EileenCritchley1September 16, 2017-ECC_7983EileenCritchley1September 16, 2017-ECC_7980EileenCritchley1

We all enjoyed our walk through the garden, looking for flowers, waterfalls, butterflies, and koi. What a beautiful way to start the weekend! We will definitely go back.
