Japanese Garden, Seattle, WA

By
Home Inspector with Charles Buell Inspections Inc.

Japanese Garden     Along with the Conservatory (and not too far from each other), there is another very cool place in Seattle to visit---whether you are playing tourist or live here all the time---called the Japanese Garden, at the Washington Park Arboretum. 

     Here is a little photo tour to give you just a taste of the trails and visual feasts at this little patch of serenity.  Every time I visit the Garden I wonder why I don’t go back more often.  Isn’t that the way it is though?  We will scrimp and save to visit some far off exotic place and neglect the things that are right in our own back yard.  The very places that someone in a far off place is scrimping and saving to come and see.

I may be slow but I am ahead of you.

Serenity

Reflect on this.

And this

Another bridge.

Don’t give me any Carp!

Home sweet home!

Inspector’s dream.

Mr Charles,

Had you taken some time, and put some effort into this, it seems to me that you could have put in a very pretty photo of a squirrel working there.

I've been to Seattle and I can definitely say, it's a beautiful city.

Your photos just confirms it one more time.

Charles, I have been AWOL due to a project so coming back today I went to leave a comment here and noticed a very interesting post just below this. So quickly I will say this is serene and I agree with exploring near home. Case in point, you know how much we like Red Rock!

 

Now off to a Wallenda Report below. I'm sure I will have a comment to leave there also.

Charles, love the photos, especially the one with the turtles...precious.  It is so true, we so often neglect to visit our own city/state sites.

Turtles and fish are such pond hogs.  I need to do something about that...

 

Very kindly,
