Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens – Spring

Spring has come and the cherries have blossomed.  Join me for another tour of the Japanese gardens in Fort Worth.

A shot from the new deck overlooking the lagoon and falls.

Cherry blossoms on a bright spring day.

The area behind the pavilions.

Blossoms against a rainy sky look like snow.

I have always loved the roots of this tree.

The non-blossoming trees have become a bright green.

Looking over one cherry tree to another.

A close up of another type of cherry.

I have no idea what kind of flower this is.  Please drop a comment if you recognize this.

It has been difficult to get the shot lately with all of the construction on the far side of the lagoon.

I am not sure if this is a rose or a cherry.  Again, please let me know if you know what this is.

A mix of trees provides a wonderful playground for the three monkeys.

Another type of cherry.

And one last rainy vista.

    Scott Brooks has several albums on the Fort Worth Japanese Garden FB page — Trees, Shrubs, Ground covers, etc. — where you will find excellent identification along with placement within the garden.

    Yea, I should promote his facebook page more (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fort-Worth-Japanese-Garden/168365139854742). He is a great photographer and has a wealth of info there. Those rose like things are kwanzan cherries.
