Kubota Garden | Seattle, Washington
Luke and I visited Kubota Garden in Seattle with a good friend of mine last week. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and many of the early spring-blooming trees were already in full color. My friend and I wandered slowly around the garden, stopping to give Luke plenty of time to inspect every large rock in the park and study each stream from its bridge above.
The historic, Japanese-style garden sits on 20 acres in the southern part of Seattle and features many different types of Pacific Northwestern trees and plants. The walking paths that wind through the garden take visitors to the spring-fed pond, along Mapes Creek, and across a few different bridges.
Luke and I will be visiting again as spring progresses and more plants come to life. I am especially looking forward to seeing the many rhododendrons in bloom!
