Japanese Gardens

Two blog posts in one day....aren't you lucky?

If you have ever been to the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, you may have been forced to park in the overflow lot when the regular parking lot is full. As if to say, we're sorry you had to go out of your way, between the overflow lot and the admission office is an eye catching display of old limestone columns. The columns were installed in honor of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, of the Vietnam War Era. The columns themselves were rescued from an old mansion in Fort Worth that was demolished. The display seems out of place at the Japanese Gardens, but belonging all the same. You don't even have to pay to see them. You can park your car at the overflow lot, frolic about the columns at your leisure, and then go on home. They make a good setting for photos, as you can see by the ones I took for the daughter of some family friends for her senior yearbook. I have taken photos here before and I am glad to have found the spot again. We did go into the gardens beyond the columns for more photos. It was a nice day to take a few pics.
