The Sefcik family went to the Japanese Garden in Fort Worth for the Japanese Fall Festival 2020 event. We were supposed to meet my cousin and our other friends there, but we ran in late due to a prior engagement. So we missed them. 🙁
Anyhow, we were able to see a few attractions and darling daughter got a chance to play a Japanese traditional game. She won a lot of cute and cool prizes mostly are Japanese snacks. She had fun.
Spring Break already? Wow! How fast this school year is passing by. We are so excited to go on a family mini-vacation again. This Spring Break we are not going very far. We are on a staycation. And our darling daughter already planned where she wants to go-to the zoo. Haha! But the trip to the zoo is tomorrow. We still had an hour spare after checking in at Extended Stay of America in Fort Worth so we agreed to go to the botanic gardens.
I missed this place. It’s been 10 years since I visited Fort Worth Botanic Garden for the very first time upon arrival in Texas from the Philippines. A few attractions looked old but the ambiance still feels the same. Serene. I can spend all day here. So lovely and peaceful. My darling daughter loved it here, too. She said the Japanese Garden is her most favorite. She fed the koi fish which she enjoyed the most. We saw a lot of blooms along the pathways but most of the flowering plants are not in full blooms yet. I am sure in April this place is full of colors. You should visit.

It is Spring season! There are wonderful things and activities that we can do this time of year.
1. go Camping
2. visit parks and wildlife
3. visit the Botanical Gardens
4. Easter Egg Hunting
These are only few of the interesting outdoor activities you can do with your family and friends. Spring is the season of blooms and sprouts. New life and new beginning. What I have in mind is to go to the Botanical Gardens soon before the flowers are gone.
When we were in Fort Worth, we visited The Botanical Gardens. My favorite area is the Japanese Garden.
It was one of the precious moments in my life. I love the Gardens. When I am there I feel like being close to Mother Nature.
The serenity of the Botanic Gardens is like at the beach. You can see green everywhere. Relaxing and calm. You will forget your troubles, worries, and problems for a while. I like it.
This is an authentic Mikoshi (a sacred palanquin) donated by Forth Worth’s sister city Nagaoka, Japan symbolizes friendship between the two cities. It is nice to see history, culture, and nature preserved in a beautiful place like the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens.
