Nitobe Japanese Gardens, Vancouver
Here is another wonderful garden I visited on my trip to Vancouver B.C. It's Nitobe Japanese Gardens up on the University of B.C. campus. A pretty good size, with a small lake, and very green as is the case with many Japanese gardens, where the focus is more on form, symbolism and mood than on colorful flowers. Very peaceful and lush. I'll let the photos speak for themselves rather than providing a redundant description. This garden was a wonderful discovery as I hadn't discovered it in previous visits to the city.
