Garden of Flowering Fragrance

We visited a Chinese garden at the Huntington in San Marino. It was completed this year. The garden is named "Liu Fang Yuan" or the "Garden of Flowing Fragrance".

There's a great deal of symbolism and meaning in each of the garden elements, including references inspired by Chinese literature. However a few photos might best describe the garden for now...

Additional information about the garden can be found on the Liu Fang Yuan website, including a downloadable walking tour (podcast) in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
