LAN-SU CHINESE GARDEN

Perhaps my favorite garden in Portland because it reminds me of my trips to China. A feast for the senses year round, take a stroll through this small (one city block) Suzhou style garden.

Fu-Lion Sculpture
At the exterior courtyard, fu-lions greet visitors.
Looking towards a pavilion
In late fall, persimmons are colorful ornaments on a single glorious tree as you enter the garden.
windows to the outside world
Occasional views to the outside world are viewed through these beautifully carved windows.

In summer, water lilies and lotus ornament the pond. adding another dimension to the view.
Koi!
A bridge to more pavilions extends across this part of the pond. Note the fall color of the weeping willow beyond.
paving at tea house
Outside the tea house are exquisite pebble mosaic paving and autumn chrysanthemums.

Architecture is at least (or more) important in a Chinese garden as the plants.

Banana trees were still around before the big freeze in December. The garden's walls create a micro-climate.
