Recently I visited a Japanese garden where sakura - cherry trees were blooming. It was an unforgettable sight. Many people also enjoyed the beautiful trees in the Helsinki Japanese Garden.
I learned a lot about the flowering of cherry trees.
There are hundreds of species, varieties and hybrids of flowering cherry trees. The number of petals, the color of flowers and leaves of cherries distinguish the trees. Some bloom in early spring, others late.
Some sakuras bloom early with medium pink petals, while others open in late spring with deep pink flowers. There are trees with spreading branches covered with white flowers. Pink and white weeping cherry trees combine an elegant weeping form with flowers on the branches.
I took a lot of pictures of cherry trees and a rock garden nearby. I really liked the rock garden for its conciseness and surprising and non-random arrangement of stones of various shapes.
Some stones were laid on the sand, others were covered with green moss, and there were also stones located on the banks of the pond. Looking at the rock garden, I thought that the rocks wanted to tell me something.
Wooden bridges across streams in a Japanese garden should be indirect, consisting of different parts.
It is believed that this way evil spirits will not be able to follow you into the house.
I spent a great time walking in the garden.
Have you been to a Japanese garden? What was your impression?
