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! We 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!
The banana milk tasted like banana Laffy Taffy’s. Not bad, but Chad helped me finish it.
After relaxing for a bit, we headed to the Greenhouse. There 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!).
After we finished our little tour of the greenhouse, we headed out to explore the garden.
Have you ever heard of aerial roots? We were really excited to see some for the first time in person!
We had relaxing time exploring this highly rated garden. Hope you enjoyed a glimpse through this post!
