San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden
Nestled in to old San Antonio, the Japanese Tea Garden is a nice respite from the city.
Lovely flowers throughout:
Bamboo, banana, and palm:
...and of course, koi the size of small blue whales:
Everybody's trying to get into the act!
Actually it was kind of cool to see three professional photographers doing photo shoots in the garden.
At mid-summer, I think some of the flowers are past their prime, so there is a bit more gray than perhaps you would see in the early spring. But the paths are well maintained and the waterfall is lovely. At the perfect price of free, it's well worth taking an hour to walk slowly through and enjoy the gardening efforts.
