Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

I’ve been meaning to post this since last weekend, but, forgive me…I’ve been exhausted. I mean, EXHAUSTED. I couldn’t figure out why and then I checked under my eyelids and realized they are super white. DUH! Get more iron Ms. Caitlyn! Phew. Anyway, here’s hoping to a more productive week now that we’ve got that business figured out. And here’s to the pretty garden we visited last weekend! IMG_1877 IMG_1879We had a super random but yummy picnic of sausage, mandarin orange jello, canned salmon, cheese and olives, and cheese bagels. I tried some banana milk and Chad had coconut milk. Not necessarily the healthiest, but it got us through the walk ahead!IMG_1876
The banana milk tasted like banana Laffy Taffy’s. Not bad, but Chad helped me finish it. IMG_1946
After relaxing for a bit, we headed to the Greenhouse. IMG_1885 IMG_1886 IMG_1887There were some pretty neat things growing inside, including banana trees, cacao trees, and coffee trees (none of which I got a good photo of, unfortunately!). IMG_1891 IMG_1896
After we finished our little tour of the greenhouse, we headed out to explore the garden.IMG_1903 IMG_1906 IMG_1907 IMG_1913 IMG_1914 IMG_1923
Have you ever heard of aerial roots? We were really excited to see some for the first time in person!IMG_1926
We had relaxing time exploring this highly rated garden. Hope you enjoyed a glimpse through this post!
