I hadn’t been sure I was going to be making a trip out to the gardens this spring, due to personal reasons, but when presented with the chance, I was up and out the door and ready to go. The cherry blossoms were about half done in the Japanese Garden, and barely started out in the esplanade. But it was a bright sunny day out, so I had fun and got quite a few images as well. It was early in the season, so most flowers were just starting to bloom, creating a nice feeling of birth. This was made even more suitable as the garden is finally finished being renovated, and the new Water Garden is open to the public.
