The Japanese Garden in the Arboretum

The Japanese Garden is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. At one time it was more open to the public, but is now walled off for its protection and there is an entry fee of $5, $3 for seniors. I think it's worth it.
Pond critters - a few ducks and lots of big, fat koi.

  1. More gorgeous pictures of such breathtaking beauty! The colors, everything! Thanks for taking us along through your marvelous photos! Enjoy your days on Whidbey!


  2. Although beautiful,this garden doesn't look very Japaneae. I expected a more formal setting.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! And I love seeing turtles sunning themselves on a rock.

  4. Gorgeous photos, Linda. I have to tell you this Japanese garden is quite a bit prettier than the one in Albuquerque, I'm afraid.

  5. I enjoyed your as-usual beautiful photos of the Japanese gardens. And hey! Don't ever think that you are not entiltled to take it easy and relax occasionally! Enjoy your book! - Dave

  6. Another place that I would love to visit!
