The Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden

These photos are from our visit to the Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden in the Chinatown section of Vancouver.  The garden is small but beautifully designed and maintained.  It was originally built by Chinese workers using traditional materials and methods - for instance, no nails were used in the wood joinery.

"The kiss of the sun for pardon, 
The song of the birds for mirth, 
One is nearer God's Heart in a garden 
Than anywhere else on earth."
~Dorothy Frances Gurney
