The Meijer Japanese Garden has been open for just over a year and is maturing well. We went there with out-of-town friends Dale and Nancy. The next few posts will be from there and a koi pond along a different trail in the gardens. The water lilies and Lotus blossoms occupied much of my shutter attention, so much that I will put the images in two posts. Part 2 will go up tomorrow. Hopefully you can close to the joy I had in photographing the water lilies and Lotus blossoms.
