It’s always a special year when the beautiful wisteria and the colorful tulips bloom together!

As Springtime at Ananda winds down, the magic is still going strong with thousands of vibrant tulips still blooming against the purple wisteria, the colorful pansies, pale blue forget-me-nots and the Tahoe National Forest.  Giant tree peonies are still blossoming, the peony tulips are a myriad of color, and the rhododendrons and azaleas are adding their light and deep pinks to the array. Dogwood trees are blooming and we still have yet-to-bloom tulips in both the upper gardens and the beautifully re-designed lower gardens. We are always open, rain or shine. For more information on Springtime at Ananda, click here. And remember – you are welcome to come back to see the bank of peonies in their burst of color in a couple of weeks! As of May 1, the upper garden will be open daily by donation.

While every visit to the garden may be different, it is always wonderfully peaceful, uplifting and beautiful. Aside from April, the upper gardens are open daily 9am – 5pm and the lower gardens are open 9am – 5pm on select days.

“I joined a group for the drive to the garden and, although I’ve visited many gardens around the world, I’ve never seen anything remotely like it.”  This quote is from a garden blogger who visited during Springtime at Ananda.

Strolling down the meandering trail from the parking area to the swinging wooden gate of Crystal Hermitage is the first meeting of color, the melodies of nature.  Entering the courtyard creates the initial impression – the resonant sound of the musical wind chimes; the beauty and grace of the statues of saints and masters of the world; the first feeling of tranquility, peace and upliftment.

Across the courtyard is the top of the grand staircase down into the gardens – the presentation of an unfolding scene so powerfully breathtaking, the challenge is in taking the next step beyond that point of spectacular beauty.
