'tsuki-yama-chisen' or 'mountain-pond-stream'

The theme of the Japanese Gardens at Mt Coot-tha is 'mountain-pond-stream' and the Japanese characters above the entrance 'yu-tsui-en' mean 'come into the garden and enjoy the blue of the water and the green of the trees'.

During March I will be using the tea house in the garden as my studio. The perfect place to sit and reflect on the coming months. At this stage of my residency I am focusing on absorbing the physical aspects of the gardens, just being in the gardens, observing nature and talking to people that work or visit the botanical gardens.
