A Japanese Meditation Garden
Gardening for joy
Diane became interested in Japanese gardens about 20 years ago because of the "wonderful feeling" she found in them. She wanted to create her own so she could feel that way every day. Her desire for deeper understanding led her to visit more than 80 gardens during four trips to Japan. Now, all she has to do is step out her back door for comfort.
"Whenever I've been troubled, I come here and get new insights," Diane says. "Some of my most joyful times have been during moments in my garden where I feel calm, protected."
