Seattle Chinese Garden

I missed more than one opportunity to sketched in this hidden treasure, and so  I marked my calendar for our May monthly outing. It turned out a exceptional gorgeous day, I was immediately attracted by the entrance, completed its main part of structure at least. 



Because nothing makes a woman smile quite like fresh bouquet of pink peonies (in fact they were my daughter's wedding flowers). Peony were known back as far as1000BC, native to Eastern China and Europe Mediterranean region. In China, not only the king of flowers, also the must-learn object of traditional style of Chinese painting (GuoHua). Due to its short season (two weeks), I could only find some of them in right corner areas, I felt the fragrance of Peonies breezed into air while sketching!
