More about Mary Magenta and Kubota Garden:
“A few years ago I walked into a lovely city park, Kubota Garden, in the Rainer Beach neighborhood of Seattle Washington. It’s an amazing sanctuary…a few steps in and I felt transformed, as though I found genuine peace.
“The Kubota Garden is an American-Japanese garden displaying a unique fusion of eastern and western gardening styles. Fujitaro Kubota and his family worked over 60 years to build the 20-acre garden, creating pools, bridges, waterfalls, stone arrangements and beautiful paintings in a natural ravine. The mature garden is now a Seattle City Park, open for free to the public during the day everyday.
“My subjects are moon, sky, sea and landscapes. I attempt to show our earth in all her magic. I hope my works will give your soul a place to rest and the space to dream…”
Come walk with Mary in this amazing sanctuary, and give your soul a place to rest.
