Wednesday in Japan...

Wednesday in Japan..., originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

The Gardens of The Adachi Museum of Art, Yasugi City, Shimane

The founder Adachi Zenko believed that a Japanese Garden is also a
living painting and the Adachi Museum has become famous for its
extensive gardens and wonderful collection of Modern Japanese paintings.

There are several garden settings, from a Moss, White Gravel, Pine,
Dry landscape to the Pond garden. Each has it own attraction and they
change beautifully with the seasons.
I bought the book filled with photos of the garden changing with the
seasons and I was enamored of the Winter views.

  1. Hello:
    Yes, we quite understand looking at this the idea of the garden becoming an art form in its own right. Perhaps that is true of all great gardens.

  2. This is beautiful. This is a living painting for soul.

  3. Hi Parsnip,

    I’m passing on to you a blog award I recently received. I hope you are pleased to be the recipient of The Stylish Blogger Award. You can find out about it by visiting my blog at

  4. The perfect place to meditate.

  5. So peaceful and lovely!

  6. Jane and Lance...
    I so agree about any garden as a piece of living art but these gardens where unbelievable.

    With the rain falling it added a special feeling that I can still remember.

    It was all I could do to not touch the mounds of grass.

    thank You so very much. I so believe your blog is
    absolutely wonderful.

    If I lived there maybe after a few years because I would be walking everywhere looking.

    I still can't believe how beautiful this garden was.

    yes... gorgeous !
