Secret Garden Part II

March 15, 2015

Last year in March I accidentally stumbled upon a gorgeous, secret magnolia garden at the Buddhist temple around the corner from my apaato. I made it a point to revisit this year to see the amazing magnolia tree in bloom.

This time I found a blooming plum tree.
