I visited the Cranbrook House and Gardens in mid-September. It was a warm sunny day. When I arrived in the garden, there was a bridge and beautiful tall trees surrounding the area. I came across the Cranbrook House, it was a big beautiful house. Unfortunately, I was unable to enter the Cranbrook House because there was a wedding scheduled that day. Never the less, I was still able to explore the rest of the garden and I took some amazing pictures.
One of my favorite places at the Cranbrook House of Garden was The Sunken Garden. Before my visit, I had viewed a few photos of the garden online and this one was my favorite. It was as beautiful as the other photos I’ve seen. There were so many lovely flowers from purple, white, pink, yellow and red. I admired how they created a lovely layout for the flowers. I had read online that they have volunteers plant the flowers and design a new layout every year. I thought that this was very amazing. I would love to visit the garden each year just to see which new design they will create.
I continued my journey through the garden and came across a trail that led me to two different gardens. I decided to take the trail to the Japanese Garden because I found this very interesting to me. Throughout my journey, I came across more flowers, trees, statues, and a big beautiful lake. It was a sunny day during my visit, so the sun was reflecting off the lake making the water sparkle. The lake was so clear, you can see the sky and clouds on the lake. When I finally arrived in the Japanese Garden, there were trees, flowers and a red bridge over the water fountain. I stood there on a rock and listened to the waterfall. It was relaxing standing there listening to the waterfall. While I was there at the Japanese Garden, there was a guy sitting in his chair drawing a picture and a young woman sitting on the rocks meditating. It’s a good place to just sit and unwind.
I really enjoyed my visit at the Cranbrook House of Garden. It’s a great place to bring your friends and family. The water fountains, flowers, and statues were very fascinating. I was amazed from the first moment I entered the garden. Although I wasn’t able to explore the whole garden, I would love to come visit again and attend a tour of the house. The Cranbrook House of Garden is located in West Bloomfield, MI. It is 40 acres filled with beautiful trees, flowers, and water fountains. I would recommend when you go, please visit The Sunken Garden. You will be mesmerized by the lovely flowers.
