Three for Thursday: Serenity




On a gray and misty day in Buffalo, the Garden Bloggers visited the Japanese Garden in Delaware Park, designed by the legendary Frederick Law Olmsted. Even with a busy freeway nearby, the garden was a peaceful and welcoming spot. On a sunny day, I doubt we'd have been able to fully appreciate the reflections of the trees and statuary in the lake. I'm so glad we were able to see it in weather that invested the views with a sense of mystery and eloquence.

So lovely and peaceful. It reminds me of the San Antonio Botanical Japanese Garden. Such a tranquil spot, it made me feel separate from the traffic noise I could here from a distance.

What a wonderful experience you bloggers had in Buffalo!

I agree, it was beautiful in the grayness.
