I wanted to start a series on plants of Japan today, but I also wanted to allude to Valentine’s Day somehow, so the compromise was to feature UBC Botanical Garden’s Japanese stroll and tea garden, Nitobe Memorial Garden. The February 14th connection is that Nitobe Memorial Garden has been mentioned as one of the best places to kiss on campus. These photographs are from late November of last year.
Nitobe Memorial Garden was previously featured on Botany Photo of the Day with a couple of other wintertime images. I’ve plans to photograph the garden in other seasons this year, so perhaps more entries will follow.
Next up on Botany Photo of the Day, a series on plants of Japan.
