A Thing of Beauty

In amongst all the doctor checkup visits, end of year bookkeeping, and general holiday hustle and bustle, I believe it is important to make time for peaceful contemplation amongst natural beauty.

 

 

I’ve been meaning to go with Mom to Morikami Gardens ever since we arrived in Fort Lauderdale a couple months ago.  This Sunday was the day.  I’ve been there many times in the past – and it didn’t disappoint.  We met up with our old friend, Gary and had a great day.

 

 

 

Japanese Rock Garden

 

 

 

 

 

Japanese gardens apparently are nature designed by people.  Every tree, flower and bush is manicured and trained to be pleasing to the eye.

 

 

 

How *do* they use the hedge trimmers at the top of this 12 foot hedge?

 

 

 

Even more pictures on our December Picasa Web Album.

Morikami Gardens is one of our favorite places to visit in that area. Your pictures are lovely, as is the place you took them at.
