JGARDEN NEWS
JGarden Pics from Budapest - Dr. Tisza István of Budapest Hungary kindly let us know about a Japanese garden in the Budapest Zoo that has been there since 1965 and was recently restored. She also sent on several photos. You can see them at http://www.jgarden.org/gardens.asp?ID=541

All about Roof Tiles (Kawara) - The ceramic roofing tile, or kawara, is an important part of the texture of the Japanese landscape. With thanks for some help from Mike Yamakami, I've written a short article on the tiles. Read it at http://www.jgarden.org/features.asp?ID=53

Symposium on Japanese Garden in America at BBG - The Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG), Garden Conservancy and the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll garden are sponsoring a one-day symposium on the Japanese Garden in America at BBG on Thursday, 18 April 2002. Read about it at http://www.jgarden.org/features.asp?ID=54
