bog garden

The beds of the bog garden are approximately at ground level, each bed in a separate concrete tub. Because many bog plants tend to be low growing, the walkways are below ground level so that visitors can get a close look.

This bonsai was outdoors. We also saw bonsai in the greenhouses.

Peace Bell

The Peace Bell is at the edge of the Japanese Garden.

The central feature of the Japanese Garden is a large pond. Here we see a koi swimming among the water lilies.

Here, the beach seen in the previous photograph is at the right. That previous photograph was taken from a path along the hill in the upper right of this photograph.
