Garden Lanterns - -Watershed #5
The Chicago Botanic Garden - Japanese Garden
There are twenty-four different garden areas covering 385 acres at the Chicago Botanic Garden.This posting will share a few photos of the Japanese Garden, focusing on some of the many lanterns used in that garden.It is easy to spend hours within that area and many more hours in the other well developed gardens.In a future posting, other sections of the botanic garden will be shown. The Chicago Botanic Garden is in the southern reaches of the watershed that cradles the Gardens at Waters East.
In the Japanese Garden of the CBG, there is wonderful sense of calm and serenity.It is so inviting and relaxing.Like Gardens at Waters East, you too might find a number of “ideas” to incorporate into your own garden space.
Relax, be at peace, enjoy this short photo tour.
