Walk with me - Japanese Gardens


Walk with me.
Click on any picture you would like to see in more detail.






Yesterday the weather was just perfect for a walk.
Not just any walk, but a walk in the Japanese Gardens here in Portland, Oregon.
I have taken you to the Lan Su Chinese Gardens, but not to the Japanese Gardens.
It is above the Rose Gardens on the side of a hill looking down on Portland,
a lovely view indeed.  Very peaceful on a Monday afternoon.
Have you taken a special walk lately?
Where do you like to walk?

This space has the peace and calm I've been seeking. It's lovely, Marilyn.

And I think you know my special walk, because I blog about it all the time!

Wow Marilyn, would I love to walk here. The pictures are so beautiful, I can imagine it in person. Today I didn't walk, I waded. We have had torrential downpours since yesterday, and we're totally flooded out! To add insult to injury, it has turned to snow!! I'll take your walk ok?

Such serenity, Marilyn... *sigh*... I so needed this today, it's been a day...LOL... I love Asian gardens. Love to walk, and my husband & I go on walks often. Locally we like going down to the beach. But favorite walks are around Hyde Park and St. James's Park in London, England. :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

I like to walk ... downtown, and on the treadmill, and in my backyard, and at the beach, and through antique malls ... I just like to walk, I guess. And I would dearly LOVE to walk in those gardens! My eye was immediately drawn to all those lovely mossy spots!
