Tulip Gardens at Crystal Hermitage

Water cascading down a rock wall, warm sun and beautiful flowers create a peaceful setting for meditation.

As part of a photography group, I recently visited the tulip gardens at Crystal Hermitage, which is part of the Ananda community located about 15 miles northeast from Nevada City (California) in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
