Japanese Garden -- Birmingham Botanical Garden
This is a pen & ink over Inktense pencil. I had a chance to stop by Birmingham Botanical Garden today. The weather was gorgeous. I headed straight to the Japanese Garden to sketch. I think it is one of the most beautiful Japanese gardens in the States. Well I only saw two Japanese gardens so far: Birmingham botanical garden, and St.Louis botanical garden. Even then, I am so impress of what Birmingham has to offer: the tea house, the house, and the bell tower. Today there was the dedication ceremony of the bell tower from Rotary Club of Osaka. I was there to witness the people rang the Japanese bell. I rang the Japanese bell too after everybody left the scene. Well one day I hope I can have a little Japanese garden of my own.
