The Japanese Garden

Last Semester we looked at the art of Asia and the noted the way in which  Japanese gardens are set out and  are featured on  their beautiful painted wall scrolls. I took this photo  (through a window) at a delightful Melbourne home last Saturday. I wanted to capture the tranquility of the garden for our Grade 3 and 4 students. The plant with the orange flowers is an Azalea and the tall water plants with yellow flowers on the right are Water Irises. The orange fish looks like  a Koi.  I hope that the message of peace is passed on by this photograph. For those who enjoy a challenge, how many fish can you find?

  1. Japanese gardens are fantastic, especially when they have a little pond with fish in it.
