Forth Worth Japanese Garden In Spring

My mom and I went to the Japanese Garden Spring Festival.  We enjoyed Japanese dance, music, martial arts demonstrations, papermaking, and tea ceremonies.  

I had been to Japan in 1980 so it brought back memories of their beautiful gardens.
Every space of the garden was carefully landscaped.
Japanese Maple Trees had leaves of bright red.
Beautiful ladies played instruments of joy.
Each struck each chord in harmony.
As they played in unison the sound filled the gardens.

Their traditional dress was kimonos. 

This sash shows she is married.
Trees reflected in the ponds.

Structures built in harmony.
