Photography Monday: The Huntington’s Chinese Garden
Liu Fang Yuan, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance, is the largest Chinese garden outside of China. The creation of the garden began in 2000 and it was open to the public in February 2008. A truly cross-cultural effort between renowned Chinese architects from Suzhou, a city highly regarded for its ancient gardens, and California builders channeling the legacy of Henry E. Huntington created and executed an exquisitely designed garden.
Layers of meaning add to the enjoyment of a Chinese garden’s artistry. Filled with symbolism, it’s more than a stroll through a garden, but like a work of art, it slowly reveals itself to show its inner beauty. For more information, please visit this site.
Next week, I will showcase the Huntington’s magnificent roses.
