As we were walking through the Japanese garden section of Gibbs Gardens, I stopped to look at this stone oriental lantern and was captivated by the petals that covered it and the surface of the surrounding pond. The paths here were also covered with the pink petals of the Crepe Myrtle trees that shade the area. It seemed to be such a wonderful scene of tranquility that I didn’t want to move from this spot.
Sometimes, nature can be overwhelming in its beauty. When man can enhance this with artistic landscape design, it is really amazing. That is a big part of why Gibbs Gardens is a place that I visit over and over again.
