The Portland Japanese Garden pictures

The Portland Japanese Garden pictures

This certainly isn't my garden, despite how hard I wish I worked there, but they are my pictures and I thought this community would enjoy them. I visited Portland, OR in May and the fabulous gardens they offer was on the top of my list of things to see and do. I visited the Chinese Classical Garden and the International Rose Test Garden as well, but I have no pictures of those save one of a rose in the rose garden. I forgot to charge my camera's battery, bad me. These are from the awe-inspiring Japanese Gardens in Portland, Oregon. I don't feel I did justice to the majesty of the gardens in these shots, but try as I might, I could not get the sheer scope of the towering trees that had been flourishing for over 50 years in this space. -I'd never been to a zen/meditation garden before, and I found the impact that it had on my state of mind nothing short of tremendous. Even just looking at these photos makes me feel peaceful and free. -The only shot I could take before my battery failed in the Rose Garden -My friends in front of the main building awaiting us after we entered the gardens
