Seattle Chinese Garden

Today we took family to Seattle Chinese Garden and Kubota Garden.  Seattle Chinese Garden will be a wonderful place to visit once it is done.  Currently the first courtyard building the Knowing the Spring Courtyard is finished and the nearby Pine and Plum Pavilion.  These two will be linked by gardens and a future Lotus pond.
Here is a view of the covered walk way that surrounds the courtyard.
