Cranbrook Gardens


Jon and I went on a photo adventure to Cranbrook gardens on Sunday afternoon. We used to go to Cranbrook all the time when we were dating and just recently realized that it had been a while since we visited. They have a beautiful Bog Garden and Oriental Garden on the property. We spent most of our time in the Oriental Garden enjoying the views.

We're looking forward to more trips to the gardens this fall and in the wintertime. The gardens are really well maintained and remind us a lot of our time in Kyoto, Japan.

  1. I didn't you lived in Michigan. I was just out at Cranbrook for work last week. :) They do have quite the impressive campus. I love your photos! I may have to go out there myself to play around as well. I am sure it is gorgeous in the fall!

  7. That garden sure is beautiful! I love visiting the gardens in the winter time-it's less crowded and just as beautiful, just in different ways.
