Japanese Garden, Botanical Gardens, St. Louis, MO.

The Botanical Gardens have so much to offer. I love the waterlilies, which I had posted in A Love Affair with Monet. Crazy Man (Patrick) loves the Japanese Garden. I can see why. The lily ponds made me feel cool and calm. The Japanese Garden is so serene it invades your being. It’s quiet and so still. People moving through the Garden seemed to soak it in and speak in hushed tones. Even the ducks were quiet! Patrick stopped on the bridge to feed the koi and the ducks came out as well. It was a feeding frenzy, yet the noise was muted. It seems even the boisterous duck finds peace in the garden as well.
