I can’t believe that during all the years we lived in Naperville, Illinois I never visited Anderson Japanese Gardens in nearby Rockford. When my friend and I made this our destination one day during my recent visit, I realized what I’d been missing! Visitors are asked to silence phones and voices to enjoy the sounds of nature. The sound of water (when not pouring into your basement or running somewhere it shouldn’t) is a peaceful sound as in this fountain with paper cups nearby.

The bright red of the Japanese maple took away my breath with its vibrant beauty.

Hawthorne, I believe.

More water.

Water and color, a wonder-filled combination.
