For the past several years, I’ve enjoyed the photos my chiropractor posted to his Facebook page of his annual visits to Descanso Gardens. These are popular events that sell out quickly. I was able to buy two tickets. Last week, a friend and I drove one hour from each of our homes located in opposite directions from the Gardens.

We spent two delightful hours soaking in the ambiance along a one-mile stroll at the Enchanted Forest of Light. We made frequent stops to take pictures and shoot videos.

These beautifully arranged gardens provided tranquil scenes in nature. They captured my breath, from the tulips in this video to looking up at the trees while colorful lights danced playfully among the branches and leaves in the next. Be sure to listen to the tranquil chimes and music.

Waterfall

The colorful waterfall was mesmerizing!

Moon on the Horizon

While my cell phone camera captures a white blob each time I take a photo of the moon; in these magical gardens, I captured vivid detail, plus a reflection in the water!



Ancient Forest

The green lit branches form an archway inviting us to enter the ancient forest. A mysterious path eventually leads to peaceful Japanese gardens.

What a wonderful experience! Make time for these small pleasures in life. They can suspend you in serenity as our visit to this Enchanted Forest did for a couple hours. Whatever you do, find a little tranquility or experience some excitement and JOY. Make such a diversion, your restorative caregiver respite.
