Japanese Gardens; A Photo Journey
It was raining and drizzling the morning we walked the Portland Japanese Gardens, yet, in reflexion, we hardly remember the wet and cold, but rather a haven of serenity.
A traditional Japanese garden occupying 9.1 acres with stone pathways, bamboo and stone water fountains, graceful Japanese maples, genuine lanterns and tea houses all with moss touches tucked away among five garden styles in Washington Park.
Soon it will be even more splendid . There was still a lot of construction going on with its Cultural Expansion Project when we were there, but that didn't dim our experience. It was exquisite, every square inch.
