I loved going to the garden. I am a junior at CSULB and have not visited the garden once while attending CSULB. Which is sad, because I forgot how beautiful and serene it was. I have been to this garden three time. Once, when I was in a stroller, so I do not really remember, also on a school field trip in elementary school, and lastly with my uncle. I loved going to the garden because it was so relaxing and amazing. I enjoyed looking at all of the plants, trees, and especially the Koi fish. I was not expecting the fish to be that big( see photos below). I was put in a trance when watching the Koi fish swim around. I found myself gazing down at the pond for a few minutes. When I was sketching, I noticed little details such as lilies, ducks, different leaves and so on. I will definitely be coming back to the garden soon! Sketching in the garden is one of my favorite activities we have done this semester. Thanks Glenn!
Below are some photos of the Japanese Garden:
Note: The Koi fish were huge! I was not expecting that.
