This is the sixth in the series of photos of North American gardens. This month's gardens are David Lam Botanical Garden (http://www.jgarden.org/gardens.asp?ID=223) and Nitobe Gardens (http://www.jgarden.org/gardens.asp?ID=214) , both at University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

PHOTO CONTRIBUTIONS:
Jeff Gockley, a friend in Denver, Colorado sent these photos of the garden at the Domo Restaurant (http://www.jgarden.org/gardens.asp?ID=464). It's supposed to be a fine restaurant and the owner is also an aikido sensei. My thanks to Jeff.
