Japanese Garden

Today I once again visited the Japanese Garden located inside the Botanical Gardens in Ft. Worth, TX. The past couple of days have been perfection personified with regards to weather, and I felt obligated as a member of the human race to take advantage of this fine Spring season on my day off. I took along my trusty Nikon Coolpix 4600 and snapped some pics while there. This garden is one of my favorite places. If you're ever in the DFW area, be sure to visit. And now on to the pictures.

One last favorite picture is of a tiny green lizard (I think it is 3rd from the bottom) as he perches in a green bush. He was sunning himself on a stone ornament of some kind but allowed me to get in quite close after he jumped to the bush.

Smashing pictures. The lizard does take a great picture.

Thank you for including Japanese maples (my favorite tree in the whole world, okay maybe tied with olive trees), meandering paths and places I can see myself sitting with a beverage.

Quite a few of the plants are ones I used in that Asian garden last year. I need to photograph that and show the progress.
