Walking along the riverbank, and suddenly this temple to life itself crosses my path. It’s a small garden – but it contains the most bonsai plants I’ve ever seen in once place. I admire beauty wherever I find it – I love a good painting, statue or building. But for sheer exuberance and vibrancy – it’s hard to beat nature showing off in a garden. Despite the limited space – the scale of this is impressive – because passing by each of the bonsai means that you can very easily spend hours in the little garden, and not see it all.
