This is the seventh 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:
Kyoto Photos from a JGarden visitor
Alan Tarver, a Philadelphia architect, has contributed his scans of his almost 100 slides of several Kyoto gardens taken earlier this year. There are many gardens in his collection, but a few highlights include: Byodoin, Daisenin, Kiyomizudera, Koetsuji, Kotoin, Manshuin, Nijo Castle, Sento Gosho, and Shisendo.



JGARDEN NEWS
Kyoto Gardens: A Virtual Stroll through Zen Landscapes - Ian Shortreed and Jim Fitzsimmons and the folks at Mercury Software have released a second edition of this popular CD-ROM on the gardens of Japan. This includes Quicktime VR 'walk-throughs' of a number of the prominent Kyoto Gardens as well as essays by notable garden scholars. Read more about it at http://www.jgarden.org/features.asp?ID=40

Summer Workshop: The University of California, Davis Program in Landscape Architecture has announced a Japanese Garden Workshop entitled "Japanese Garden, Culture and Tradition" to be held in Kyoto, Japan in Summer 2002 Monday, August 19 - Friday, September 13. Read more about it at http://www.jgarden.org/features.asp?ID=45

JGarden Redesign: The JGarden site has got a new look. About 18 months, I re-design the site, giving it a face-lift and adding a few new features each time. This ones been in the works for the past six months and isn't entirely complete yet, but some of the new changes include what (I hope) will be easier navigation, a new index of How-To articles on the web, a "What's New" section and some much better maps of where gardens are around the world. I'm most excited about this last feature as maps and spatial analysis are my day job, but it's taken a great deal and it's also the one part that's not done yet. So maybe by the next newsletter....
