Kubota Gardens, Seattle, WA

The Kubota Gardens in Seattle, Washington is an urban garden refuge featuring streams, waterfalls, ponds, rock outcroppings and mature plants representing the life-time vision and commitment of the Kubota Family.  The vision of the patriarch, Fujitaro Kubota, was to display the beauty of the Northwest in a Japanese manner.

As we walked through the gardens this spring, I was amazed at the beauty and tranquility that surrounded every pathway and vista.







Thank you for joining me on the walk around the gardens.  I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.  It is the perfect weather for the great outdoors...stop by A Southern Daydreamer and take a peak  at what is happening around the country and world!

  9. Look at that red bridge--I love it! What a lovely garden. I've had the pleasure of visiting the Portland Japanese Garden, and it is also very beautiful.
