Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

If you’re ever in or near South Florida and want to visit a most invigorating and inspiring garden and museum complex, I encourage you to make a stop at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach - they’re simply exquisite.

During the holidays, I spent several days in Palm Beach with my friend, Lisbeth Barron. Lisbeth arranged a selection of tours and activities for us including a walk through Morikami. Its museum galleries feature different aspects of Japan’s rich and diverse culture. Among the current exhibits, we saw “Out of the Blue: Japanese Indigo Textiles”, which runs through January 21st. Morikami’s Gardens, named Roji-en: Garden of the Drops of Dew, were designed to complement the museum. The six distinct garden spaces are inspired by some of Japan's historic gardens and are all beautifully and meticulously planted and maintained.

Here are some photos from our visit - enjoy. Over the next few days, I will share many images from my New Year's trip to Palm Beach - you'll love them.
