The Osaka Japanese Garden in Chicago is a small garden
tucked inside Jackson Park
behind the Museum of Science and Industry, south of the Loop and just off Lake Shore Drive.
It is set inside the larger Jackson Park but
it wasn't necessarily the easiest garden to locate (I was working from Google directions, but at the last minute I had to consult "Siri" on my daughter's iPhone).
But once I found it
it was worth the effort to get there and slip into this small, pleasing retreat for a few moments of zen.
Water is a significant feature in this garden,
leaving lots of space for reflection.
It is a perfectly simple and lovely spot
to observe reflections on the water
or to take a few moments to reflect on the day
or on your thoughts
and then let them flow,
like water under a bridge.
This is GardenEnvy.
