Stunning Flower Design at Yume Japanese Gardens




One of my favorite pastimes is to walk outdoors to commune with nature, and unwind in a serene place that captures the essence of the season. 

Last October I had the pleasure of seeing a flower arrangement exhibit, Fall Ikebana 2023 Festival at Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson, AZ that was sublime. I'm excited to share my photo essay with you.

For those unfamiliar with the term Ikebana, it is the traditional Japanese art form of flower arrangement. To learn more, read
 



The gardens are located at 2130 N. Alvernon Way in central Tucson, AZ. The picture right above shows the entrance. The gardens may be difficult for first time visitors to notice, since signage is small. My tip is to drive slowly, once you're on the 21oo block of N. Alvernon Way.

The gift shop, book store, museum, and 8 garden areas are concealed in the back. Parking is free but limited, although there is neighborhood on-street parking nearby.

Hours, days of operation, and admission fees vary depending on event. Check ahead by calling 520-303-3945 or see the website.

See Ikebana Flowers at Yume Japanese Gardens for additional flower arrangements.


I love the minimalist look of Ikebana flower arrangements, graceful lines of museum memorabilia, eye-catching d├ęcor ideas, and serene and refreshing landscapes at the Yume Japanese Gardens. 

This flower design exhibit in Arizona was food for my mind, body, and spirit.

  3. When I lived in Sierra Vista, AZ, I used to travel to Tucson to visit my brother and my friend. I wasn't aware of this museum. It looks like such a relaxing place to attend. Beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing.

  4. My favorite is the orange flowers in a vase. I love how the flowers burst with color from their long stems.

  6. Being 1/2 Japanese, I love anything Japanese and have visited a few Japanese gardens and a few gardens that have had special temporary displays, like the origami one that we saw in Fayetteville, NC. I loved going on the virtual tour of the one in Arizona. The displays are amazing. I'm adding Tuscon, AZ to my bucket list!
