Yordie’s Zen Garden has always been a Japanese style strolling garden. However, the garden has always had a separate section that contains a true Zen rock garden. That was true in the past and it is true in this garden as well. Also, there have always been attractive features at my garden such as the tea house and The Harvest Moon Cafe, so of course those features are present at the new garden as well. But this garden is much bigger than gardens of the past, so there are several new features including a large pagoda, a pavilion on the little island plus a section reserved for houses. For those who haven’t visited yet, I hope you’ll enjoy this photo study of more of the new features.
Some features were pictured in the post announcing the gardens opening. Other features and elements have not been photographed yet. I do this to encourage readers to come and visit the garden. So, here’s an SLURL for you directly to the garden in Yemple. Who knows, you may find Taka and me puttering around. /me smiles
If you are interested in learning more about Second Life gardening, I have tried to keep a log of many of my discoveries under the gardening label. You might also find the cultural paper, The Japanese Garden, which I prepare during my time as an apprentice geisha to be of interst.
