Serenity Now

A Japanese Garden in Portland

Japanese Garden

“Harry and I toured this delightful garden yesterday.  Thought you might enjoy this photo. The Flat Garden (hira niwa) is designed  using a sea of raked sand. The two islands of plantings depict a sake cup and gourd-shaped bottles, signifying pleasure and a wish for the visitor’s happiness.”

  1. How serene! I’d love to spend a day there. But they mustn’t allow 4 year-olds – I can only imagine what my grrandson would do to that raked sand in the blink of an eye!
