It will be months before I work in my gardens in Colorado. Decimated by deck construction, tough winters, and dry summer months, mine are looking a little more than gnarly. While yearning to escape winter, I found my photos of the stunning Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We flew to that amazing city on our way to Whistler’s Wanderlust Yoga Festival in 2016.
Struck by the integration of architecture and gardens, I was swept away by one zen space after another.
A bonsai pine tree over the pond.
A pagoda at the top of a hill overlooks the grounds. Dr. Sun built a place in the garden for meditation. Several of those unusual rocks graced the space.
This stunning Chinese gem is located in the middle of Vancouver.
My husband, Danny, and our daughter, Courtney, gazed at the pond before we left the peaceful oasis and entered the bustling city.
The gardens inspired me to carve out a space of my own for contemplation and meditation.
I held that position just long enough for Courtney to snap the photo. Ha!
