I wanted to linger for hours . . .

Japanese Gardens


Something magical happens when you begin to stroll through a Japanese Garden.  It’s ok to feel that you’re experiencing a time warp sensation, because you know that nothing has changed for hundreds of years.  The beauty, the serenity and the reason for being have been valued and preserved; and I was grateful to experience it all.
