Japanese Garden at Rio Grande Botanic Garden

I buy a zoo pass every year for unlimited visits to the zoo, aquarium and botanic garden. I hadn’t been to the botanic garden for a while, so when I went a couple months ago the new Japanese Garden installation took me by surprise. It’s wonderful. Go see it.

Here are some photos (all taken by Miguel Navrot) provided to us by City of Albuquerque web genius Wade Irving. Thanks.

You can’t see it in these pictures, but there’s a waterfall and a big koi pond and little streams winding around with bridges over them. Next time I go, I’m going to play samurai.
