Photography Monday: Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden Part II

Situated on the campus of Cal State University Long Beach, this 1.3 acre Hill and Pond Japanese-style garden was built through a generous donation from Mrs. Loraine Miller Collins in honor of her late husband Earl Burns Miller.  In the planning stages for three years, construction began in the summer of 1980 and the garden was dedicated in the spring of 1981.

This garden was a joy to see.  We loved the intimacy and beauty at every viewpoint.  Next week, a few more beautiful shots from this lovely garden.

In order to comprehend the beauty of a Japanese garden, it is necessary to understand – or at least to learn to understand – the beauty of stone. – Lafcadio Hearn
