Anderson Japanese Gardens

One afternoon while Alexis was in town, we went to Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford. The weather was really nice and our camera battery was fully charged, so we got some good photos.

We saw a cute little gosling. Its parents started hissing when we got close, but they were blocking the walkway, so we had to wait for them to get out of the way.


There were several koi (carp) in the ponds. We fed them, and the ducks saw what was going on and came over. It turned into a feeding frenzy!

  

Ed saw a chipmunk and we managed to corner it to get a picture:


There were several waterfalls and lots of flowers were in bloom:

Ed took all of the photos. He has some talent with our point-and-shoot camera! It was a nice way to spend an afternoon. We definitely plan to go again some time.
