On a misty day, the yellow flowers caught in the golden hour provide excellent contrast and allow you to take Tumblr-worthy #mood photos at the garden. Now all that’s missing is your caption and some song lyrics.

With flower gardens like that, you don’t even need to get on a flight to Japan for your dreamy flower-themed photoshoot.
