Chinese Garden

Chinese Garden

The Chinese concepts of harmony and tranquility are captured in Portland’s Classical Chinese Garden. This is a Ming-style urban garden from Portland’s sister city Suzhou, the city of gardens. The five elements of plants, water, stone, architecture, and poetry compose this exquisitely arranged landscape. The reflections found throughout my walk lent themselves for my own reflections. I also found myself noticing the variations in the mosaic stone path. The infinite wonders of the universe can be experienced within this space.
