The Lotus Are Blooming – Japanese Gardens
It has been a week full of fun outings with friends, which is my excuse for not posting on Monday. One of those outings was a trip to the Japanese Gardens in Van Nuys, California, with friend Suzy and her young son Christopher. This beautiful garden spot is set within another park: scenic Lake Balboa Park, situated in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. The entrance fee is $3.00.
The day was blistering hot and my idea to visit the gardens in the afternoon may not have been the best choice, still Suzy and Christopher were up for the adventure and joined me for a walk through this tranquil setting. There have been so many write-ups on the Japanese Gardens and surrounding park that I’ve decide to forego any kind of written review. Instead, I have posted photos that will allow you to draw your own conclusions.

Until next week, WRITE ON!
