What’s Inside Dragon Seeker?

A mom and her 2-year-old son reach inside and take a peek. The little ones often feed pebbles to Dragon Seeker. Even in winter, the Garden can be a fun family outing for on a pleasant day. The family dog (on leash) is welcome too

A Bright Start to the New Year

Good wishes to all our Garden friends and supporters. We look forward to seeing you in the Garden during our 2018 festivals and programs. Come for a stroll anytime – even the winter garden offers special experiences – especially if it snows again.

Shadow Patterns

Late afternoon is a special time for appreciating the Garden’s architectural details and the interplay of light and shadow. This view of the east gate reveals the intricate layering of design elements and color, from blue sky to woodwork. Any pleasant day throughout late fall and winter is a wonderful time to come for a walk and savor the Garden’s beauty as the sun slips into the western horizon. Photo by Sandy Marvinney. 

Courtyard a Kaleidoscope of Color

The Celebration of Traditional Culture on Saturday, September 16, turned Knowing the Spring Courtyard into a swirl of dance, song, and art by performers from seven Chinese community organizations.

Thank you again to our event cosponsors: America Long Yu Traditional Opera and Face-Changing Art Academy, US China Peony Culture Foundation, and Frank Li, who brought together the performing groups.

June 24 Kite Festival: Action in the Air and on the Ground

A beautiful, breezy day drew close to 400 people to the Garden’s fifth annual Kite Festival. Along with dragons, butterflies, and rainbow kites, the first ever octopus drew a lot of attention. It was one of the highest flying kites too. Wudang Internal Martial Arts Academy students led by Dr. Mei-Hui Lu drew an appreciative audience for demonstrations of martial arts styles including pole, sword, taijichuan, and others. Thank you to The Boeing Company for its sponsorship and to Boeing volunteers who helped with event planning and during the festival.
