Bonsai tree: Chinese Garden of Friendship

Chinese Garden of Friendship

I had the fortune to visit Australia last month. After a long, sleepless flight, I arrived in Sydney unable to check into my hotel for several hours. So I wandered around. Just five minutes from the hotel, I stumbled into Sydney’s Chinese Garden of Friendship. And right inside the front gate, I found myself in the “Penjing Courtyard.” I found it funny that my first photos of Australia featured small trees in pots.

The rest of the garden was a pleasure – a perfect way to while away the warm afternoon.
