I still recall my first visit to the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden in Lethbridge. I was but a child and it impacted me then. Perhaps that's when my love of gardening began or, more likely, I inherited it. Whatever the root, I have always loved the form of a Japanese Garden. The elements of earth that are recreated there and the simple peace of the garden just make me go "ahhhhh."
Today I am sharing with you a video I just found about the philosophy of a traditional Japanese garden. I enjoyed revisiting those elements that endear this design to me and hope you will too.
