This was our old stomping grounds when I was a child, The Japanese Gardens. My one enduring memory of the place was the time my brother "fell" into the waterfall there. Things have sure changed. That section is now blocked off, I'm sure to keep other clowns from "falling"in.
Karate Kid took this lovely picture at the Rose Gardens. I remember our Grandmother walking us through the acres of roses when we were children.
The timing of our visit was perfect. The roses are in full bloom. They are absolutely breathtaking. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to enjoy this splendor now.
