The ball probably fell down in that Giraffe crotch.

So, every time I post something, I'll get hit with an inane reference to something that was fun at the time? Good to know

I still haven't picked any favorites for Asheville - forgot to be totally honest, but I do have a bunch from the Japanese Garden in Portland:

In these next two, I did see the steam and I tried to get it. It shows up better in the second one at this size. Turned out pretty cool IMHO

Another border. This one was on the large Zen Garden. I like the difference between the two substances

Are these ceramic tiles?

Thanks! I don't really know. I assumed they were stone.

Nice pictures!

And I too was wondering about that border material. Looks like stone, shaped precisely, just like tile.

I'll buy the synthetic stone, whatever that is.


I'm guessing stone dust mixed with epoxy. Pressed into a mold. Or extruded and cut off, like playdough.

Ceramic is, essentially, synthetic stone. Hence 'stoneware'.

But you are correct about that recipe and variations thereof. I've no idea what that stuff is, could be roofing tile, could be resin cast,

Japanese gardens are teh awesome.

I'm a big fan of wilderness and the chaos of nature, but the chaos you find in nature doesn't produce the lovely natural looking perfection found in this garden. It's like if Disneyland made a forest.

It's my first. I want to go back next year in the Spring or Summer and see the differences. I'll do more hiking then, too.
