San Francisco Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco is an amazing place and is the oldest public Japanese garden in the US. It is in the heart of Golden State Park and allows for you to take in the beauty of nature. From the moment I walked towards the entrance door I feel in love. A place that marries the aspect of architectural design and nature.

My fiancé and I enjoyed walking through all the majestic paths. There was even a tucked away space that was so tranquil we both did not want to leave the bench we were sitting on. It was as if everything around us was standing still and as we looked above the tallest tree is where we could hear the wind swirling by.  All I can say is absolutely breath-taking.

New York Botanical Garden

Hello! I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day! I wanted to share with you my Labor Day excursion to the New York Botanical Gardens. First, just let me say what a beautifully enchanted place. As soon as you walk in you smell nothing but fresh, clean air and are welcomed by greenery where every your eye travels. This landmark has been around for over 120 years and supports over one million living plant collections on 250 acres of land.

The New York Botanical Garden is truly a gem and offers a great escape from the busy New York City streets. Coming here allows you to slow down and decompress taking in only beauty. This place is indeed a treat and on my top for recommendations for things to do in NYC. Here are just a few pictures of the beauties I spotted on my visit to this majestic place.
