Visiting the Botanical Garden at the University of California, Berkeley
Sunday, February 26, 2012
The Japanese Pool features large stones and a snow lantern from Japan that were imported for use at the Golden Gate Exposition that was held in 1939 on Treasure Island. The stones and lantern were later donated to the botanical garden.
The Japanese Pool also features a colony of California newts, and we saw quite a few. They are breeding now, so I didn't want to try and get close enough to them to take pictures.
