Japanese Garden in the Arboretum

As soon as you walk in, the shady trees, stone bridges and slowly moving koi make you feel serene and rested. I don’t visit the Arboretum’s Japanese Garden nearly as often as I’d like, and today it seemed like an essential way to come down from the high of traveling and appreciate the beauty of where I live. With lots of benches in shady spots along the walkways, it was an ideal garden for the Friday sketchers to spend the morning.
